Tips for starting a rural business

How to open a business in the village and start earning - step-by-step instructions for beginners TOP-9 ideas for a startup

The travel business in Russia has always been a profitable business. The profitability of this direction remains high, despite the emerging crises or difficult economic situations in the country.

Recently, rural tourism as a business has become entrenched in the service market, and is of interest to residents of large cities. Agritourism allows a person to plunge into the everyday life of the Russian hinterland. For sophisticated townspeople, such a vacation is exotic, and for this they are ready to give a lot of money. It is not difficult to organize rural tourism, but there are some nuances that a novice entrepreneur should be aware of.

We recommend that you explore one more direction in the service sector: the business of smoking products.

Ecotourism in the countryside: where to start

Ecotourism as a business is attractive for rural residents who have limited funds. A small start-up

capital will be sufficient for:

  • Purchase or construction of a small house on a personal plot;
  • Purchase of a vehicle that is necessary for the transportation of tourists.

In addition, you will need to purchase pets and set up a small vegetable garden where food will be grown. It is allowed to use a private house of an entrepreneur as a place for tourists. It is necessary to divide or allocate part of the room for the dining room, since food must be prepared in a special equipped room.

When drawing up a business plan, an entrepreneur must choose the type of ecotourism that he will offer to clients. There may be several options:

  • Camping on weekends;
  • Accommodation of guests in the countryside from 1 week to a month;
  • Comfortable rest in comfortable cottages ...

If circumstances allow a person to invest a large sum of money in the organization of rural tourism, careful planning is necessary. Before turning a business idea into reality, an entrepreneur must decide on the scope of the project and correctly assess his financial capabilities. These factors affect how the infrastructure of the enterprise will look like. It includes places for vacationers to stay, food and entertainment.

Pay attention! The tourist complex can be built in the traditional Russian style, in the form of small wooden huts, surrounded by picturesque nature. The meals of the guests staying are provided by the household.

Any kind of activity, including rural recreation as a business, has its pros and cons. The benefits of ecotourism include:

When the dream of opening your own profitable business in the city, due to the high competition, seems hopeless to you, it makes sense to try to start "small" and start a business in the countryside.

Let's figure out what is the peculiarity of doing business in rural conditions, find out what its advantages are, consider possible disadvantages.

Peculiarities of doing business in the countryside

It is a mistake to believe that a successful business can only develop in a city, and the larger the metropolis, the higher the chances of success. This conviction is one of the reasons why villagers leave their homes and try to establish their own business in large settlements.

It turns out that they "wash out" finances that could be directed to the development of their region. Meanwhile, in the countryside, there will be no less development prospects with a reasonable approach than in the city.

The horse pulls harder on its native land.

Folk wisdom

But those who stayed should be aware that there are as many risks in rural commerce as in urban. You need to choose the niche that will be popular with future customers. Knowing the preferences and needs of neighbors and acquaintances, you can more accurately formulate goals.

Given the underdeveloped rural infrastructure, the service sector will become quite profitable. Even in the city, shops, pharmacies, hairdressers or entertainment centers are popular. And this is with tough competition, which is much easier to avoid in rural conditions.

When starting their own business, many people immediately think about some kind of production. And organizing it is also easier in the countryside. There is less rent (and in many cases people already have the required space), lower wages. That immediately at the start will give you a competitive advantage that will not be in the city.

Advantages and Disadvantages for Businessmen

In cities, the most profitable and popular niches for business have already been mastered and occupied. Even with the initial capital, it is not easy to develop to the level of payback - at every turn you are trying to cut your competitors.

That is why more and more start-up entrepreneurs are turning their eyes to the countryside - there is space, there is no end to it, there is where to turn around and pick up decent speed.

With you Denis Kuderin - expert of the magazine "HeatherBober" on financial issues. I will tell you what a business in a village is like in modern Russia, which agricultural sectors are the most profitable for investment, and how to competently conduct a business in a rural area so as not to go bankrupt.

Business in the countryside or how to get rich outside the city

There is a persistent misconception that doing business in the countryside is more difficult than in the city. In reality, a much larger number of projects started from scratch are paying off in rural areas. At the same time, the costs of organizing and running a business are an order of magnitude lower - if only because land, labor and resources are cheaper here.

Investment in agriculture is a promising and long-term investment that is almost independent of fashion trends in the economy and market fluctuations. The land and what it gives are enduring values ​​that people will always need. Even the most advanced technologies cannot replace meat, bread and milk.

Developing agriculture is not only beneficial, but also beneficial for the development of the economy. In the context of the crisis and constant sanctions, Russia is more and more oriented towards the domestic market, which means that the products produced in the country will be more and more in demand every year.

At the same time, you need to understand that manufacturing industries, by definition, cannot bring quick profits. This is not stock trading or even an online store that pays off in 4-6 months.

Business in the countryside - for those who count on the long term. After all, the crop, poultry and livestock must first be grown and only then sold.

I will list all the advantages of doing business in rural areas:

  • relatively low competition - the number of farms in Russia is not yet large enough to fully supply the domestic market with products;
  • the state supports farmers - they take less taxes , grants and subsidies are allocated for the development of the agricultural sector;
  • the cost of natural products is constantly growing - people take care of their health and prefer healthy domestic products to imported ones;
  • lower electricity tariffs and others resources - for example, in the Novosibirsk region the difference in tariffs between city and countryside is 25%;
  • a more favorable environmental situation - clean air, no chemicals in products, etc.

And if in the field of industrial goods almost all profitable niches are already occupied, then in agriculture for enterprising and energetic people - expanse. And then, agricultural products are needed by the population all year round, which means that there will never be a shortage in the sales market.

Setting up a business in the countryside is possible both on the scale of your own farm in the courtyard, and in the form of a large project for the development of the village. The choice should be based on personal skills, initial capital and the demand for an idea.

An option for earning money in the countryside is growing vegetables.

How much money is needed to develop a business in the countryside

It is impossible to unequivocally determine the amount to open a case. In one type of entrepreneurship, the minimum investment will be required - up to 50 thousand rubles. Other business ideas require RUB 10 million. and more.

State assistance

Farmers and agricultural producers receive government support.

  • assistance in creating tourism infrastructure;
  • provision of land plots;
  • concessional lending;
  • refund of part of the funds spent on the purchase of animals or plants.

Entrepreneurs must be entered in the budget register. After that, the person will receive the necessary subsidies.

What kind of business can be opened in the village - types of programs

It is necessary to analyze the demand for the product that is planned to be released, calculate the cost and methods of selling the goods.

Fish or crustacean farming

  • carp ;
  • sturgeon ;
  • trout.
