Don't Say There Is No Job, Irish Potatoes Agribusiness Could Suit You

Irish potatoes are a common source of necessary starch, or carbohydrates in layman's terms. Starch gives the body energy, which it needs for the bodily tissues to function properly. With the support of the obtained energy, humans can also continue with their usual tasks.

Irish potatoes are grown in the Mount Elgon and Mount Kenya regions of Kenya, among other places. As a result, there are enough Irish potatoes circulating in surrounding marketplaces in these areas, which simply means you may purchase 50 kgs of Irish potatoes at a lower price there than in areas like Nyanza and the North Eastern regions, where Irish potatoes are scarcely grown.

You can't acquire more than 50 sacks of Irish potatoes, each weighing 50 kilos, and transport them from farms to markets in Kisumu town, Siaya, Garissa, Nairobi, Mombasa, and other places unless you have a personal probox or a pickup. If you don't, transportation will cost you a lot of money. You'll need to rent a car to get them to the market if you want to buy them in bulk.

Market prices for a 50 kg sack of Irish potatoes are at around 4, 090 shillings, while farmers sell them for roughly 3, 800 shillings. As a businessperson, you can buy two 50 kg sacks and sell them in places like Nairobi, Kisumu, Mombasa, and Siaya, among others, where Irish potatoes are expensive.

In these regions, 1kg of Irish potatoes costs between 90 and 100 shillings, so if you sell both bags, you'll make roughly 9, 000 shillings. If you purchase the two bags at the quoted price of 7, 600 shillings, you will make a total profit of 2, 400 shillings. That's a profit of $24,000 assuming you buy roughly 20 bags. Potatoes are an essential need, which makes this Agri business appealing. As a result, a lack of market is not a threat unless you have transportation issues.
