Dinners, pageants, Saturday owanmbes, variety nights and dates, all you need is a few kits, and resilience. You can invest your time and money into learning pedicure,  manicure and makeup and be the savior of those girls are in need of them. I know many girls who survived by these skills. And during hot periods like dinners and pageants you can bill considerately. We all love glamorous looks, so we would definitely pay for them.

You can make  fried snacks like puff-puff, doughnut, chin chin and even popcorn and sell them to hungry students. And many students prefer not too cook sometimes, so they can order food from you and you get paid. You can also make rounds in the hostel selling or reselling local made snacks from the market, you provide this for students at their comfort, and students love their comfort. So you basically get paid for comfort and filling the bellies.

4. Thrift stores

A student without a pen is like a farmer without his implements, have you ever been in need of a pen so urgently that you would literally do anything to get one. That's how important stationeries are, mobile stationeries that have highlighters, sticky notes, pens, pencils, graphs, rulers, markers. These "implements" are what students use to progress to the next level. Sell these and make your money.
