My corn cobs business didn’t cost me anything to start up. It only cost my pride. I put my pride and class in the pocket and went out to hunt for disposed corn cobs in the streets.

This period is the corn season. There is hardly any place you will go without seeing corn cobs. Corn roasters are everywhere in the street selling to the people. I went to all these places and undertake to carry away corn cob wastes from the corns.


I have done it for more than one month. I sell to the animal farm owners. Recently, I got a contact from industry and I was told the quantity they accept. I am on it.

But so far, I have made #28,000.00 ($74) from the new business. This may look little to some people but to me, it is very big, especially when I remember that I made the money from the wastebasket.


This month’s sales are going to surpass that of the last month from every indication. I am also aware that the business will be seasonal because corn cultivation in my area is seasonal. There is no problem with that. I am enjoying the abundance now while it lasts.

This a new business opportunity. You’re welcome to join in the hunt. There is wealth in the wastebaskets.
