1. Credit and Electricity Token Business

The first business opportunity in the village worth trying is to become a seller of pulses and electricity tokens. As we know, nowadays many electricity payments have switched to a pre-paid system, including those who live in villages. Of course, you can use this as a business opportunity, especially if the location of PLN in your area is quite far.

To become a reseller or electricity token seller, you just need to find a trusted distributor. This one business can also be said to be a minimal risk because electricity tokens are needed a lot so you don't have to worry about your sales not selling.

In addition to electricity tokens, you can also sell credit or data packages at the same time. These two commodities are needed by all levels of society and the capital needed to start them is not much.

2. Plant Seed or Agricultural Medicine Business

The village is very synonymous with natural products or agribusiness. You can use this to open an agricultural business such as selling seeds, medicinal plants, and other equipment that can support agricultural activities.

3. Mini Gas Station Business

Fuel is one of the crucial things needed in the village. Unfortunately, finding a gas station is not easy in the village, especially since it is quite far away and takes a long time to travel.
