Hi, I'm from Philippines too, I don't think you could start much with 10,000 pesos but I could suggest buy and sell gadgets if you're in to it but you must know the secrets of the trade. It really takes time and experience plus a little connection to earn fast and possibly big. It's really risky though for starters especially if you haven't have any experience in selling and meeting up people personally to do the trade. I am actually in this business for almost 5 years now. I'm a student but I like this job so I guess it's okay for now. You could also maybe start other business like Avon, Boardwalk, etc. It requires time, patience, and selling skills.

im not good into selling since im an accountant and a caregiver by profession hahaha. besides im pregnant right now so i guess i cant go out as often as i can. and yes its very risky if i will go to buy and sell im just thinking that what if no one will buy the item.

Yes, I was actually thinking about your being pregnant. i really don't know another business that could be started with 10,000 pesos. Maybe you could start a micro lending but you'll have to choose who to lend it to or you'll end up broke in no time. Anyway, I wish you good luck on whatever decision it is you choose.

I don't think you can put too much effort in selling stuff since it's gonna squezze out of your brain juices and makes you even tired which could be bad for the baby. my advice is that you should try to start small livelihood business. like * selling vegetables,fruits and others that you see in the market, you kow like onions,garlics and stuf like that. * sell beverages like home made orange,mango or any flavor juice since it's summer, i have a regular customer who sells beverage, not softdrinks. * or have a small food cart for soup eating or viand selling. i believe the ones i mentioned required less investment.

Can you start an internet business? If you have knowledge in a particular area you could start an information site. There are also a lot of business now that will help you set up a drop ship site. They order from your site and after they pay it is shipped to them.

hmm,, 10,000.00 there are a lot of food carts there available, but it should be around 20,000.00 maybe you can have your own? but location will still be the most important consideration. why dont you try to be a dealer of eload, autoload, while you are still looking for something to do. im sure you already have cellphone, you can load and reload using a very small amount of money

hello home shoppers, you can try doing a small livelihood business like selling drinks,beverages, or start your own soup cart. as for me, I've been into this small ice business and it's doing good because it's summer, not much but at least i get to buy things too,except today that i started making an inventory list. you need to start a business that doesn't require much of your stamina.or the baby might suffer if you get tired.
