These businesses, if executed properly, can fetch them huge profits with least probability of failure. So today in this article, we are going to present to all our readers some great business ideas that one can reckon to start in a low budget range of INR 50,000 to INR 1,00,000 or US $800 to US $16,000.

These businesses can be started as part time business or can be started as a full time depending on your availability and can be operated in any part of the world. Though I am using INR and US dollar as the currency for the better understanding of the article.

Now let’s take a look at the list of business ideas that you can opt from if you have a low budget of around Rs 50k to Rs 1 lakh.

1. Flour Production

Budget Needed on a Monthly Basis-

  • Wheat- Rs. 20- Rs. 50 per kg
  • Labor- Rs. 8000 per month

Flour production is a great business option for people with a budget of up to Rs. 1 lakh because it can easily break even after just a few months owing to the demand for flour. There are various types of flour available like wheat flour, corn flour, rice flour, sooji, gram flour and so on depending on the raw materials used.

Choose a convenient location to set up your flour shop. Procure wheat directly from farmers in a nearby farm that you can easily get for Rs. 20-Rs. 50 per kg. Buy required machinery and hire a helper to assist you in the wheat production for around 6-8k per month. Package them and sell them to end users at a competitive price than what is available in departmental stores. For 1 kg flour that is available in the market for Rs. 50- Rs 100, you can sell your product for Rs. 60-80/ kg. And you can easily earn huge profit margins.

Designers can be either hired at a fixed monthly rate of up to Rs. 15000 or you can pay them around Rs. 200- 300 per creative and sell these creatives to clients at Rs. 400- 600. SEO can be charged depending upon the difficulty level and competition in the market. For low keyword ranking, you can charge your clients Rs. 1500/ keyword and assure them results in a month’s time.

But the website is not getting any traffic due to SEO or codes issue because the owner doesn’t have much knowledge about all these. Also, the owner has invested around INR 10000 to INR 20000.
