Home Based or Part-time Business Ideas for Pakistani Ladies

kausarbilal CreativeWriterYou are highly educated or less-educated, it doesn’t matter, provided you have a passion, a knack for a business and a special skill, service or product to offer. Those who are divorcees or widowed recently should not lose heart. Sometimes, these accidents and hard luck open new doors of opportunities for us. Similarly, if you are single, fighting for better financial conditions for your family, a girl student struggling to finance your studies or a mom want to invest her free time in some good venture, home based business can be an option for you.

Home-based business means you need not to rent or buy an office. Rather, you may work from your home, either enjoying the flexible hours or fixing some specific hours for your work. Here are some of the ideas.

Whatever you opt to do, never miss a few things:

  • Get a professional certificate, diploma, degree on what you want to take up as a career. Apart from formal educational institutes, there are many free online courses in various disciplines offered by the top universities of the world. Even you may look for videos and free online workshops. Just Google.
  •  If professional education is not available or impossible to get, go and get yourself trained by working with already existed professional institutes. Begin from best available ones and then move to the better ones.
  • Stay connected to the other professionals of your professional network. For instance, if you are into Day Care business, try to approach other Day Care professionals around and learn from each other.
  • Ensure your online presence. A Facebook page, Twitter page, Google+, an updated website, a running blog, all speak for you and attract your clients.

Day Care Centre

If you love young kids, Day care is an emerging profession as now moms of the new generation want to pursue family and work at the same time. So, they always look for good Day Cares for their kids.

Since we don’t have specialized programs in our country for running a Day Care Centre, it is better to work with some good Day Cares for almost 2 years before you start your own as it will give you firsthand knowledge of various dimensions of the business, e.g. what services are included in Day Care? How to deliver them in the best way? What do your clients expect from you? How much to charge? How to market yourself? etc.

Even after your regular hours, you may offer moms to leave their kids with you when they are on shopping, celebrating special occasions with their husbands or friends, are busy with emergencies and other busy hours.

Also, you may offer to take care of old parents for a short while.

Tuition Centre

According to your teaching experience and education, you may open up tuition centers for preschoolers, or school going students of different levels. Also, you specify a subject that you are specialist of and would like to teach.

Apart from teaching school kids, you may cater adults as well. For example, you offer English Language Classes to Adults, Computer workshops for housewives, or so on. Just identify the need of the people around you and offer your services.


You may offer your cooking specialties, bakery, desserts, regional or traditional food or so. Accordingly, you may specify your clients as whether they are banker, offices, school/colleges/university canteens, hospitals, departmental stores, bakeries, banquet halls, event management companies or so.

You will take your food samples to them and talk about the different aspects of the business. e.g. your price, delivery period (daily/weekly), number of items required, etc.

Or, you may hire distributors to buy your product and market it  on their own.

Online jobs

If you have pretty good writing skills, you may work as a content writer, editor and social media consultant. These days, it is an emerging business in Pakistan.

You may Google your work opportunities and find some good sites that may offer you work of your choice. Also, you may introduce yourself by approaching various business companies on your own, where job fairs at educational institutes and outside can be a good introductory opportunity for you. However, don’t forget to ensure you are working with a company who is reliable for its professionalism and pay you on time regularly. Or, you ask for advance payment firmly to avoid the online scam.

Furthermore, real life references of family and friend may also open many doors of opportunity for you.

Since we don’t have professional trainings in Social Media Consultancy at our educational institutes, it is preferable to work with a top class professional Social Media Consultancy, The Blog Company, to learn it from a-z through a professional Guru.


With good writing skills, you may offer editing services to college and university students for their home assignments.

Also, you may run consultancy services to students where you call each and every student and edit his/her assignment in front of him/her in order to teach how to avoid writing errors.

Both services may have separate charges.

Also, you may offer your services to books and magazine publishing companies or find online opportunities.


There are ladies who buy clothes, bags, shoes, paintings, make up material, jewelry or other accessories from sales at brands, or places where they can buy quality products at reasonable prices. Off and on they conduct exhibitions at home and at various spots to sell these items with good profit.

Likewise, if you have some specific skills like knitting, pottery, paintings, dress designing, event management, interior designing, decoration items, food specialties, you can also opt for exhibitions platforms to promote your business.

Here, in any case, don’t forget to get help through social media marketing to access your client worldwide. The best approach is to hire a social media consultant on monthly salary or offer a percentage of share in your profit.

On Call Office/Kitchen Helper/Nurse/Teacher

If you have good office keeping skills along with some experience, you may tie up with some companies and institutes who will call you whenever they need you as a substitute worker on daily wages or whatever is settled between you and your employer. They will call you in case their regular employees are on leave or leave them immediately without or with short notices. You will work there until their need is fulfilled by someone else.

Never ignore your online personal branding.

As for kitchen helper, wherever there is a home-based party, or food places that are short of workers, they may hire you. Go and get connected to some good companies and families who may need you any time.

Likewise, if you are a certified nurse or a teacher and don’t want to work full-time, you may offer your services to relevant institutions and they will call you whenever they need you, like a on call office helper. Make you Facebook page now as a first step to online marketing.

Beauty salon

If you are professionally certified and/or experienced, offer your services to the right client, where you find the market less competitive, like new housing schemes, small cities, villages or so on, most probably you will flourish fast in this competitive market.

Apart from general service, you better advertise yourself for some specific clients as well. You may declare you offer special services to students and housewives. Find ways to approach them directly.

Social media and a favorable word of mouth is a must.

Run A Nursery

Many ladies are very fond of gardening and doing experiments in it. They may open up plant nurseries and offer their consultancy to their clients.

If you are a herbal researcher as well, it will add a new dimension to your business.

Home Poultry Farm

Some ladies love to have pets and collect a big variety of them at home. They may offer poultry products that are pure and fresh in quality. Quality is a major issue these days, especially for milk. If the product is up to the mark, profit can be immense.

  4. Nice ideas….it would’ve been helpful if you had posted a few web link ( besides the blogging one) for your audience to get help from or get started on. I’ll throw in an idea here: finding reliable maids is a huge problem, somebody should step forward and hire reliable people and establish cleaning companies. For not so educated masses raising chickens, or if you can afford purchasing a cow is another source of income. These ideas are not huge but they lead you towards self sufficiency.
