This business doesn't required shop to start with if you don't have the cash, no worries. If you have been in Lagos you should understand better why you don't need a shop to start okreka business.

The people in this business are merely find in popular areas of Lagos such as railways, All they do is to arrange the cloths on top of a wide nylon or table. This business doesn't even required full day and it won't disturb you of your other daily activities. The main appropriate time for this business to start is during the evening when workers are returning from work at (4:30pm-7:30pm).

Afford their lunch, and try to be kind to them, get them a hocking bowl. You can include table water and canned drinks such as malt, team drink etc. Those people hocking sell more than 20 bags of pure water daily if God be for you.

You can get as much as hawkers up to 10 or 15 of them to be selling for you on different location in Lagos, you will be making up to #3000 from this business daily, it highly better than begging or being jobless. The cost of pure water at wholesales is currently #80 per bag.
