You can set up a laundry firm and charge at least N150 per shirt which mean complete cloth will fetch you N300.
Assuming you’re able to collect 10 cloths per day that’s 3k.
I know what your thinking. You can’t really wash more than 5 cloths per day?
You don’t even need to wash it your self as there are some women out there who really looking for whom to manage with.
This type of women wash cloths for dry cleaner. You can employ them and give them N50 per shirt and if they wash complete cloth you give ’em N100

Now through your school WhatsApp group, advertise the available hostel for student by stating out the features included in the hostel.
Get customers and earn your own percent as the agent involved.
The sweet thing in this is that before you can take any student to any available hostel you collect N1,000 for transportation fee and if at the end the student involved don’t later like the hostel, you don’t loose at all.
Also some people add a sum of N5,000 for the first payment a student would pay for hostel while some add up to N10,000
