Milk Centre

To open a milk centre, you will have to contact a dairy farm. Milk centres generally collect milk from the villagers & sell it to dairy farms. They require only few equipment like weighing machines, billing software, etc to start a business. As rearing of buffalos and cows are common in villages, milk centres can bring good profits.

Grocery Store

This is one business option that is widely explored by almost every section of society. Every household need grocery items. Therefore, opening a ‘grocery’ store is one of the simplest businesses in India. All you need is get a shop of rent and reach out for suppliers of the products.

Fruits & Vegetables Vending Shop

Electronics, Mobile and Accessories Store

This business does not require huge investment. All you will have to do is buy some good quality fertilizers and seeds and take a shop on rent to run this business.

Clothing Store

Clothing is an important thing we all need hence if you open a clothing store in your village that provides people with modern and good clothes then it shall become a success. For this you will need to look for garment suppliers who can bring a variety of clothes based on commission. As people in villages do not travel to cities frequently they will buy from the nearest clothing store.

Door-to-door supply of drinking water

Clean drinking water is needed by everyone. Many villages in India are still deprived of this because of lack of infrastructure and water treatment plants. You can store fresh water from tube wells / hand pumps in large cans and then can supply it to villagers at their doorstep. You can charge them per jar or per can. In this business you need very less investment as compared to other businesses.

Integrated Fish-Cum-Duck Polyculture

Placing the ducks together with fish ponds suits the fish polyculture method perfectly. To go ahead with this business idea, you need a water body like a pond etc.

Jute Bag Making

As you may know that jute is a biodegradable eco-friendly fabric hence bags made with jute have a relatively good market demand and export capacity. With a reasonable machinery, you can start a jute bag unit in your village itself.
