How to start a small business in Philippines with minimal capital

So you’re thinking of starting your business in the Philippines but only want to spend a small capital probably because you’re just starting or now or just simply because you’re in a tight budget. I hear this a lot from Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs), long-time office employees and even students.

Truth is it’s actually possible to start a business with a capital of around 5,000 to 15,000 Pesos and I’ve seen many people do it. In fact I did it myself and it works.

To do this, I asked myself the following questions:

  1. What products are sellable to Pinoys?
  2. Where can I find a supplier that will give me somewhere around 10% to 30% discount?
  3. How can I start?

Here are my results.

What products are sellable to Filipinos?

This was the easiest part. I quickly found out that we Pinoys love our health and our looks so the obvious answer here is health and wellness. The good part about this is that most wellness products do not spoil (unlike food products).

Who’s the best supplier of Health and Wellness products in the Philippines?

I searched high and low and my search brought me to the network marketing industry. With the myriad choices I have in choosing a network marketing company, I ended up with Royale Business Club for the following reasons:

  • Royale’s standards are high
  • The efficacy of the products and the presentation are top-notch
  • As a distributor, I get 20% to 30% discount on all products
  • No quota and no minimum orders
  • Lots of branches and satellite centers nationwide

How to start a business with Royale?

This was a breeze. All I needed to do was watch a 1-hour business presentation and then purchase either a “Neo Package”, “Starter Lite Package” or “Starter Package”.

Neo Package is the cheapest but I went for the Starter Package as the benefits and income potential were way better.

How am I doing now with Royale?

I’m now part of the “millionaires’ circle” and gladly earning passive income on a weekly basis. I told everybody about my business and now people are coming to our house to purchase Royale products (some also end up signing up as a distributor like me).

But why Network Marketing?

Network marketing allows me to start my business with very little overhead. I purchased a package, sold its contents and easily got my money back. This is honestly the fastest R.O.I. I ever had in my entire business career (tried computer shops, trainings, etc). I also get to enjoy all of the company’s existing and upcoming infrastructure nationwide and worldwide. The best part however is I get to do it at my own pace – no pressure whatsoever.

You want to start a small business and you want it affordable – this is how I did it, and you can do it too. Post a comment below and let me know that you’re interested.
