With PureWater, all you need are 2 thousand naira, two weeks time, and Patience!

Pure water business is a great opportunity for everyone because it does not require any special training and you don’t need to be a genius.

Anyone of us can run this as long as there’s some space in our homes like a garage, shed or a room. Before getting into the details of how the pure water business works, let me tell you that you have to be ready for low-profit at the beginning. I will advice you to be patient and give it some time before quitting.

Pure Water Business: How Does It Work?

It’s a simple business idea that requires no investment, except 2k for buying a few water purifying starter kits and some 1k for transportation if you are going to sell it straight from the factory.

In my case, I went to Alaba International Market where I bought a tank of 10,000liters water and transported it to Lagos Island in a tricycle; in this way, I would have spent an additional 1k on transport.

Here’s how Pure water business works:


If you decide to sell water direct from the factory, you will have to buy your own transportation. The good thing about this is that you get to keep 100% of the profit but the bad thing is that if people reject your offer or are not willing to buy; it becomes a loss for you.


I decided to market my water on Facebook using an agent. The process is simple and you don’t need any special skills; what you will do first is put your water for sale at a price of 10k per litre and then pick a person who fits into your profile i.e. someone with 100 plus friends, who doesn’t have a job and has poor people in her contacts list to become your agent.


After picking an agent, you will ask him/her to promote your product by sending out messages like “selling 10k litre water for 100naira” or “Selling 10k litres of pure water at 120naira.”


As you wait for customers to respond to your advertised product, you will also login into Facebook and look around your agent’s page and profile. What you have to do is go to his/her friends list or contacts and search for people who don’t appear happy like a person who has been crying or wearing mourning clothes.


Once you find a suitable customer, message them and ask if they are interested in buying your water at the price of 120naira per litre. If the person says yes, then tell him/her to pay through mobile money or bank transfer; once he/she pays, send the water using either Jollof Express or Chocolate City Express to your customer. The selling price of my water was 120naira per litre but I sold it for 10k because I had given the agent 100% profit. You can check out more details about the process in this video:

Once you have delivered your product and are sure that the customer has received it, you will call the agent and ask him/her to give you feedback. If the customer is happy with your water, then the remaining amount of 10k will be paid to you.

How Much Will It Cost Me To Start?


To start the pure water business, it’s going to cost you about the capital you plan to start wit. What 2k will go for is buying two big tanks of 10,000liters and transporting them to your final destination because if you are planning to sell it in a location where there are no truck drivers or tricycle drivers; then you have to do the transportation yourself.
