     It is undeniable how the pandemic is reshaping society. The need for social distancing for a prolonged period (expected even with the transition from ECQ to GCQ), some social paradigms are bound to shift.

Baranggay-wide logistics

     Everybody needs groceries, and you’ll do it for them at a reasonable price. Wholesale businesses like Puregold offer partner programs for retailers. Barangay-wide logistics is essential for the logistics business since the wholesaler can prepare the partner’s orders in bulk. The products are what the end customers need for their groceries. Customers interact and place their orders via social media or different website platforms. Payments can be COD or online purchases.

What you’ll be needing:

  • Tricycle/Multicab (any mode of transportation to make deliveries)
  • Initial grocery budget

Estimated Initial Capital: About Php. 100,000.00 (vehicles are now on short amortization period)

Food Delivery

     People will always have cravings even to the smallest bits of things. However, with social standards requiring distance, deliveries are going to be the prominent setup. This idea is among the easiest to start up and, perhaps, needs the least amount of capitalization. Offering craving foods via social media channels will always get attention and, of course, patrons. Even if what you are offering is a paper bowl filled with everything fried, i.e., fries + fishballs + hotdog cuts, tandem with cooling beverages.

What you’ll be needing:

  • Bicycle or any vehicle with basket or carrier for delivery
  • Deep frier(s) and cooking equipment
  • Initial inventory budget (condiments, packaging, products to sell)

Estimated Initial Capital: Can start with less than Php. 10,000.00

Online BFF

     Social distancing dramatically affects the number of interactions that people can have. This pandemic, and everything that comes with it, is, without a doubt, stressful for everyone. Even more so for extroverts, enthusiasts, and people who need someone to talk to, they are the potential market. Such people are more than willing to pay good money for a good quality conversation. And yes, some people are willing to pay by the hour. Setting this up may require some technical knowledge on building websites (if you plan to make a website) or finding a platform to create an account and host such services.

What you’ll be needing:

  • Smartphone, Tablet, Laptop, or PC (the hardware)
  • An excellent stable internet connection

Estimated Initial Capital: Can start with less than Php. 50,000.00 (if you already have the hardware, can be less)

Backyard agriculture

     Growing your vegetables is something that can earn you substantial money. This method is suited for people with unused patches of land or remaining areas/spaces. Particularly with the logistics of fresh supply impeded, there could be more demand for good produce more than you can imagine. Fast-growing crops such as okra, turnips, radishes, baby carrots, and even some cabbages are the way to go. They do not need extreme care and have a fast turnover rate.Growing your vegetables is something that can earn you substantial money.

     Additionally, some of these can be grown in large pots. Very simple and direct. All you need to do is learn how to plant and keep your plants healthy. As for when the harvest time comes, you might want to contact your local market dealers if you can be their suppliers.
