Hello everyone, today I will share some business and investment ideas by featuring OFWs who became successful with their business.
Forget all the networking scams that caused despair to a lot of OFWs, these business ideas are real and not make believe. This idea is not only for OFWs but also for others who are passionate about putting up a business.
Before I continue, let me tell you that the first problem in starting a business is not money but knowledge. You have to be knowledgeable in the field that you want to do. Before starting anything, you must know a lot or at least the basics about the business. You cannot put up a poultry farm without attending seminars and learning from the Internet and other people. That being said…
Investment and Business ideas for OFWs part I
First up, ROLANDO COSTALES of the Costales Nature farms.
Rolando Costales has been featured to various magazines because of his success in agriculture. It only proved that there is big money in agriculture if you know what you are doing.
Many OFWs invested in his project of creating green houses where he planted herbs, French beans, and other crops. The green house produces precious crops that his farm produced a profit of about P30, 000 per month.
He focused on organic farming and supplied fresh herbs like flat parsley to restaurants. He also opened his farm to tourists which added to his revenue. He expanded the farm to include bee keeping and many more agricultural product.
Today, the Costales farm is one of the most popular farms in the Philippines. Although he died last year, there are various interviews, stories, and videos left in the internet. Many of his students continued his advocacy and the costales farm is still alive and it continues to expand.
What is great about permaculture and organic agriculture is that it is popular and there is a big demand for organic produce. If you trained right, you can produce and sell many organic products at minimal cost. Interested? Why not give the Costales Farm a visit and be inspired or attend one of their seminars?
