Haiti Small Business Ideas - I Need Your Input...

QUESTION - What type of small business would you start in Haiti right now? Start-up cost must be USD $500 or less, and it has to be so simple that anyone can manage it...

Haiti Small Business Ideas

Reason: Lots of people in Haiti need a JOB... So why not help them and help ourselves in the process?

In Haiti, there are A LOT of people doing NOTHING... Every day... So why don't we start thinking of ways to hire family and friends to work for us instead of handing them a fish (give/transfer money) every time they need it?

Coming to Haiti, I realize that there are quite a few people around me who are just sitting there doing nothing. I don't want to give them money to spend... That's a bad habit...

Instead, I would like to give them something to do, something small, something with a very low start-up cost but with a decent profit margin.

Each person has to be able to give back the capital investment and a share of the profits. After all this is an investment and NOT a gift. I also need to use that same capital, and the Return on Investment (ROI), to help more people.

Think about it, if you can go into partnership with someone in Haiti, if you help them succeed, you can use the same money over and over again to train more people and start more small businesses....

SO... What kind of business can you think of that you can start in Haiti for $500 U.S. or less that you could hire someone to run for you for a share of the profits?

Come on... Help me think... :
