2. Online shop
Many Filipinos nowadays do not go to the malls anymore in order to buy what they need and want. All they do is go to the internet to look for interesting things to buy. Study the products that are not yet oversaturated but have the potential to gain a lot of customers.
3. Pandesal business
Pandesal is one of the most popular breakfast items for Pinoys. Do you know that some pandesal sellers are able to sell over a thousand pandesals every morning? Just make sure that you do not have too much competition around the area in order to maximize the number of your customers.

7. Sari-sari store with cellphone loading business
Putting up a sari-sari store with a cellphone loading business would only cost you about P20,000 to P30,000. The tricky part is finding a good location with a low monthly rental fee for your store. Putting up a sari-sari store in your own home might be a better idea because it can help you save more money.
