Sachet & Bottle Water Business:

Sell pure water or bottle water is one of the Income Sources to Add to POS Business

This is mostly regarded by some as a venture for women or people who sell provision or canteen ( Mama Put) but you are wrong on this, the advantage you will have on this is that most times people who come to withdraw money from POS are always in a hurry, they just want to get quick cash for one bill or the other however most times you may not have a complete change to pay for when the withdrawal is done, and as human, water is life, people will always thirst for it,

It’s advisable to sell both the bottle and sachet water to able to reach everyone according to their purchasing power or affordability, trust me on this you could be making an extra 200- 400 daily on this alone especially if your water is very chilled, in some areas now sachet water is sold 20 per one and each bag contains 20 sachet water if you sell 2 bags daily (this is easy), it will add extra 400 to your daily earnings

Like WAEC Scratch Cards, NECO, UTME, and other academic MAterials, for you to integrate these it means you must have had some cool space to accommodate your students, you can even have a standby laptop for checking and printing of results and registrations. I gave my friend working at National Open university this idea and he is thanking me every day, students always feel frustrated in their online registration, he steps in to facilitate the online Remita payment reducing the stress they face in the bank, and he charge as much as 250 per payment, in one day he can generate more as much as N4000 from online remita payment
