Fresh graduates are being mobilized for the National Youth Service Corps scheme(NYSC) in order for them to get the mandatory NYSC certificate before they could get employed but it is surprising to know that not many of these prospective corps members ever think of how life during or after NYSC would be like. To those prospective corps members, do you know your service year provides you an ample opportunity to make it in life? During my service year I had friends who became established and did not bother going back to their home state after their service year.
The truth is if during your NYSC you depend entirely on your allowance from the FG and your PPA there is a 90% chance that you will find it very difficult. Why go through this stress when you can really make some extra money for yourself?
Now if you are an already serving corps member or a prospective corps member you can take advantage of these business ideas I am about to share with you and start earning some extra cash during your service year.
