If you want to buy the peanut make sure you don’t go for big seeds or small seeds, go for average seeds, which is not too big and not too small. Make sure the peanut is healthy before you buy them.

     2. Acquire the skill on how to prepare the Peanut: The truth is that preparing peanut is not a rocket science. The first thing to do is to fry the peanut. If the peanut is the type of peanut that you have to peel, then peel it, after that wash the peanut with warm water, then add some salt to it. After adding salt to it then spread it on a flat board, then leave it till the following day. The next thing is to prepare a fire and make sure your pot is ready. You can use cassava flakes inside the pot. Empty the peanut inside the pot and then stir it continuously while on fire, with the flakes until the peanut is ready. Once the peanut is ready just put it down and then shift the flakes from the peanut immediately so that they will not get burned. Just wait for the peanut to cool, and then package it and sell them both in bottles and in waterproof.

     3. Start selling the peanut: As a peanut supplier you have to supply to roadside shops. These roadside shops will then resell to the final consumers. If you actually want to retail the peanut, you have to take the peanut to an open place where there are a lot of people.

Furthermore, this business is really a lucrative and profitable business that can fill your bank account with money.
