When it comes to celebrating Sallah (ileya), it’s always a big one. Faithfuls from all works of life engage in the icon celebration, making necessary expenses to enjoy the season with their loved ones.
If you are racking your brains, thinking of how you can tap into the sure money that would flow and earn some for yourself, you’ve come to the right place. Here are 5 businesses anyone can start right now ahead of the pending celebration:
Ram, Cow and Chicken Rearing/Selling
Obviously, this is the hottest cake of them all. An average ram can go for N50,000 during the season while well-feed hefty ones can sell for as high as N150,000. Cows are more expensive because of their size and feeding expenses. A healthy cow can see for over N250,000 during Salah which is usually a 50% or more increase from the selling price any other day. If you are not already into the rearing aspect of these animals and time is short, you can try sourcing for cheap-priced rams and cows from Kastina and Kano, have them transport to Lagos, keep them feed until you sell them at a profit when Salah comes around.
If big animals are not really your thing or you lack the capital to go this scale but want some meat on your shelf; dive right into chickens. People don’t know it, but not all Muslim families can afford a ram or a cow. They would rather buy chickens, perhaps a lot of it and that is where you come in!
Have you gone to Aswani market or Lagos Island market a week to, three days to or the eve of Sallah? You would not believe the crowd rushing to buy clothes for the season. From ready-made to second hand and expensive local Muslim wear to imported materials. The time to buy up stocks for the rush-hour is now when they are still cheap and available. If you can set up your selling point and network in time, you would be counting your profits by the time the season is over.
Families would sure be traveling home for the celebration especially to the Western and Northern sides of the country. Transport companies are licking their mouth at the moment at the revenue they would amass and they are right to do so. You can arrange a temporal transport service to convey both people and goods across states during the period if you know the traveling routes very well.
Organize Parties and Shows
Everyone knows the money would always flow to parties and shows during Eid Mubarak. It’s just a Lagos thing. Big artists, comedians and show organizers have already started making plans for mega showdowns, trust me. So if you have a knack for pulling events and bringing people together for parties, you are already in business!

Services like these would always be in high demand during Sallah as people would need money from banks ATM and would need to subscriber their decoders, top-up data/airtime, and transfer money to their loved ones. You can always serve your local network by becoming a terminal agent.
