Ukay-Ukay Business

Ang dami nito sa buong Pilipinas but super dami pa din ang bumibili. Why? Because it is easy to find branded items at super cheap prices when buying sa ukay-ukay. All you have to do is to find a supplier, really, plus a stall in a very public area so that your business can grow faster.

You don’t even have to invest a lot within this kind of business kasi mura lang naman yung ukay-ukay bundles and you don’t need to set up a trendy store. Some ukay-ukay owners even make do with large tables where the clothes can be placed – yun naman ang concept ng ukay-ukay eh.

Imported Items Store

Since you are abroad naman, why not sell stuff from the country where you work? After all, you send your family several balikbayan boxes a year, it wouldn’t hurt to also fill several boxes more with stuff to sell. All you have to do is hunt for really big bargains (di ba ang dami nyan sa mga naglalakihan malls?) and take note of the original price ng items. Puede yan i-sell ng family mo sa katumbas ng original price. Better yet, keep the tags dun sa original price so you have “proof” na mamahalin yung binebenta mo – tsaka original pa!

Laundry Shop

A lot of Filipinos are now taking more jobs or spending more time at work kasi nga ang hirap ng panahon, di ba? So, madalang na lang ang may time maglaba pero they need fresh clothes, of course. You can meet their needs by setting up a laundry shop. Medyo mahal nga lang ang start-up but pag maganda pagpapatakbo ng laundry shop, profits will be coming in quickly.
