Men and Women Salon

And who doesn’t love looking good and shining? Do you know that our heads do much more when it comes to making others attracted? Women, you know what I mean. If you are able to have all the requirements of making a women’s or men’s saloon, you are getting late my dear. Start right now and gain from the open market with thousands of customers. If you wait, then your share of the market will be reduced. Go now and open that women’s and men’s saloon. Simply do that new hairstyle women love, or cut that men’s hairstyle which is trendy, you will never regret.

Mobile Money and Utility Bills Agent

Every day people send money to their loved ones. Also, people want to have a balance on their phones to buy Airtime and data. I am sure you see why you, must start this business due to the availability of customers. Additionally, if you can combine money and utility bill payments, you can make it and make others ask how you did it. By the way, this is our secret. Let others simply wake up and find you already rich. If you can’t afford to buy a mobile money line directly from Airtel or MTN, Go for Quickteller by Interswitch or Payway and start right away. Don’t dare Pebuu, those guys have a bad reputation.

Motor Cycle Spare Parts

Here where I am, these Boda boda mechanics are the people who will never run out of clients. Yes, Boda boda parts sell high and people buy. If you can guess the number of people who own motorcycles including Boda bodas, then you can tell what I mean. The good side of this is that you can sell parts and at the same time do repairs. You see, with automotive, no one knows when it will fail, and which is your advantage.

Chapati and Rolex Business

I just remembered Jumia Food where people ordered Chapati and Rolex. You know what I mean when I talk about Chapati, Rolex, Beans, etc. This used to be the “Poors” meal but not any longer. Even big restaurants and hotels have this menu, but of course at a big price. If you can start this small chapatti booth of yours, you will make money and come thank me. Yes, we are ready as Kikomando buyers. By the way, it’s already lunchtime. Let’s hurry before the chapatis harden – hahaha, only for bad makers.

Chicken Roasting

Hey, if you know how to roast chicken, run my dear. Run and start right away. I have been seeing these few guys who are doing this same thing making people stand for an hour waiting for their turn. By joining this profitable business, you are not only making your own money but also saving us clients who wait for a long time. Do it now or wait until there are thousands of such. You will thank me later.

Women and Men Fashion shop

People wear new clothes every day, especially the women’s gender. By starting your small women’s and men’s fashion shop with clothes and other products including face, nail, etc makeups, you are diving into the pool of money since the area is full of people who prefer fashion aka designers. What are you waiting for? Did you know that those easy women’s dresses can be got at a wholesale price of between 7,000 – 8,000/= around town? Don’t say I didn’t tell you.


People use pens and books every day including envelopes etc. These items can be bought in stationaries regardless of whether it’s going back to school time etc. By starting the stationary profitable business and stocking things people buy, you have already made money since buyers are ready and the market is available.

Boda Boda business

By the time I finished this paragraph, I had already seen about 20 boda boda’s all riding passengers. Ad you say there is no work in Uganda? Sure? Get a boss and become a boda rider. Or, get your own motorcycle at a boda Banja and become a boss of your own. Bunamwaya will make you rich since clients are already waiting for you t ride them.

Shoe selling

My neighbor sells women’s shoes but lacks children’s and men’s shoes. I have seen people ask him to bring in men’s and children’s shoes but she is reluctant. This is a simple example that if you can sell shoes of all ages and genders, you will make real money. Whether you want to sell gender shoes, the famous musonso, or the Nigina’s, you are ready to grab your share of this available market.

Home items

From mattresses, sitting and dining room chairs and tables, office furniture, etc, you have access to the demanding market. Yes, a demanding market that is ready to shop from you.


If you know that missing a meal is not advisable, then you know what I am arriving at. Starting a restaurant or hotel can make you real money because people eat every day. Unlike those stuffed areas where food is available all the time, in Bunamwaya that is still lacking. If you can join the food industry, people will eat and you will sell your food daily to 0 balance.

Final Word

If your question is what profitable business can I start with 500,000 Uganda Shillings in Bunamwaya, this post has all the answers you are looking for. Make use of it or even recommend it to a friend so you can grow together.
