Every business is a business. With Rs10k lots of things can be done.

Try to get some contact with people who go to China occasionally. If you managed to be in good terms with them. Then try to ask them to buy one of the following for you:

Plastic accessories for everyday use.
Children school accessories
Baby clothes

If I were you, I'd start with plastic accessories. This business is really going on very good these days. With the profits I'd have got, I'd have invested it in other things that I mentioned above.

A business is a business, however you should think deeply how to get it work! Once you know the trick, you're now a well-off man!!

Good Luck :)

I've discussed with people and most of them have done this. But they told me Rs10000 is too low and I'll be at lost.

You see, this is how people are nowadays. Every business you'll discuss with them, they'll tell you, it'll never work and you'll be at lost or practically earn nothing.

I've known many success stories here, people in my own locality and from other as well. That's why I related you it.

Don't get into what people tell you. Business, besides making profit also means risking. You'll never move forward without risking your money.

@Moricien can anything else than selling products from china work in mauritius?

moricien 10 Nov 2012

@Ziya of course yes! Selling peanuts, selling dholl-puri, all of these are profitable business without needing much investments.

Selling chicken is another business that you can start and earn over Rs30k p.m.

Most of the successful businesses started with a great idea and little money. Bill Gates started Microsoft in a garage, Richard Branson began his empire from a magazine he ran from the crypt of a church and Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook from his University campus.

The very name "business" means to make profit and if anyone knew for sure what business they could do, they would do it themselves rather than telling you. People are selfish by nature and if they were sure something would be profitable, they would do it themselves. You cannot run a business with a borrowed idea, it has to come from yourself.

A great idea comes when your mind is not thinking and the irony in this is you cannot stop thoughts when you're focused on making money.

On a side note, I've heard that hawkers (marchand ambulant) make good money. I've also heard selling clothing/jewellery on Facebook is profitable and with the increasing number of new Facebook Business Pages popping up everything, that seems to be true. Perhaps you could look into importing some stuff from China and see how it goes...

If only Rs10000 had much value to buy a land :/

Hope someone in Economics sector gives another reply because I'm so short of ideas right now.

@khush what do you actually want to do?What kind of help you exactly want from economics sector?

Khush_Mendossa 09 Nov 2012

I want ideas.

if you want ideas...i will give you was among my ideas..but i will share it with you..start bio farming which is just to farm food without using pesticides and herbicides,, an i will give you one more containers and rent them to companies that deals in shipping can earn well if you have tons of them..but the problem for that is of course that one container cost 144 000 rupees..which is beyond you capital right go for bio farming..
