Let me guess, you want to leave full-time employment to concentrate on your own stuff.

But despite being sure that you want to start your own small business in 2021, you still don’t know which one.

Well, if you are in South America and reading this post, you might as well want to stop everything you are doing and give me your undivided attention.

By the time you finish reading this post, you will be well aware of the most profitable business you can start in Argentina, businesses you can start without capital in Brazil, and/or even growth businesses to go for in Colombia.

Are you ready?

Let’s get started.

  1. The Best Small Businesses to Start in Argentina in 2021.

Business idea in Argentina

If you are in Argentina and would like to start your own small and profitable business in 2021 then look no further than in the creatives industry.

As a creative in Argentina, you are almost guaranteed a place to sell or display your art or craft.

Try to picture this, Buenos Aires alone has 400 theatres, an Arts District, Villa Crespo, and the oldest art fair in Latin America.

If the theaters in Buenos Aires alone can’t convince you enough to set camp in Argentina, then use these facts to decide if art in Argentina is still worth it.

It is estimated that Argentina received 7.3 million international tourists in 2019. And other than seeing the scenic attractions in a country what else do you think would bring a tourist to your country?

Of course, the good culture which they almost always take with them in form of souvenirs.

Not to force art and craft down your throat though, you can also become a business consultant in Argentina, start a digital marketing agency, develop and sell mobile apps, make money packaging, and selling customized tours in Argentina.

The list is endless.

If all that doesn’t interest you, consider investing in the stocks market with Olymp Trade.

A new Olymp Trade account comes with $10,000 which you can use to practice trading.

The best part, you can use this link to create your account in Spanish.

2. Best Small Businesses to Start in Brazil in 2021. 

Business ideas in Brazil

Brazil is the biggest of all South American countries.

Do you know what that means?

It has the largest population in the region which keenly translates to more buying customers in South America.

You don’t believe me?

Here’s proof. In 2019 when an estimated 7.3 million international tourists visited Argentina, nearly 1.5 million of the said tourists were Brazilian residents.

It goes without saying that they booked hotels, planned itineraries, searched for taxi tour guides, among other things tourists do.

In 2021, you can start your own tours and travels consultancy agency in Brazil to make money from doing all the things that tourists find hectic.

With the statistics from 2019, it is almost certain that Brazilians will want to hire you for customized travel services.

Other businesses to consider starting in Brazil in 2021 include:

  1. Luggage delivery business for tourists.
  2. App and software development business.
  3. Start an e-commerce business.
  4. Produce and sell bottled water in Brazil.
  5. Produce and sell wine in Brazil.
  6. Sell pet food in Brazil.
  7. Become a professional consultant in Brazil.

That’s not all,

You can also invest in currencies in Brazil with the help of the Olymp Trade Mobile app.

Interestingly, the app is now available in both English and Portuguese.

3. Best Small Businesses to Start in Colombia in 2021. 

Business Ideas in Colombia


What’s the most profitable small business that anyone can start in Colombia in 2021?

That would be the hospitality business.

Even though Colombia isn’t so much a popular tourist destination as Argentina and Brazil, it is still a tourist destination to reckon with.

In 2019 alone Colombia received over 4.5 million foreign visitors.

And it’s not like it is difficult to start a hospitality business in Colombia.

All you need is enough capital and the will to do business.

The rest is almost well taken care of.

Interestingly, the government gives tax exemptions for all capital goods in tourism-based exports.

And, it also gives tax discounts to employers for giving employment opportunities to handicapped or disabled workers.

If you ask me, a sector that’s supported by the government almost always grows so fast.

If you invest in the hospitality industry in Colombia in 2021, chances are, you may not go wrong.

An alternative to starting a hotel business, a restaurant business, a bar, or a tours and travels company in Colombia would be to: –

  1. Start a business in the mining sector in Colombia
  2. Make apps and software and sell in Colombia
  3. Teach English as a second language in Colombia
  4. Offer business to business services in Colombia

If none of these small profitable businesses to start in Colombia interest you, consider investing with the Olymp Trade app.

With over 90 assets to trade on the platform, you get the chance to invest in different assets including stocks and crypto every day of the week including public holidays.

Interestingly, the app allows you to trade in both Spanish and English.

4. Best Small Businesses to Start in Venezuela in 2021. 

Business Ideas in Venezuela

It is almost impossible to talk about small business ideas and opportunities in Venezuela and skip the entertainment industry.

Bad as things are in the entire world, Venezuala still has a vibrant entertainment scene.

The people of Venezuela still organize events and festivals to reach citizens and distribute culture in the midst of a difficult situation.

Do you know what that means?

You can still start your small business in events management, theater performances, or come up with outdoor entertainment gigs and your business will still make sense.

If you are skeptical about Covid coming back strong, consider venturing into the technology space.

  • Trade with $1
  • Earn up to 90% profits

Mine bitcoin, make apps and software, or even better, sell used items.

Otherwise, education and alcohol are still great industries to pursue in Venezuela in 2021.

Also, don’t forget that the Olymp Trade app is also available in Venezuela.

If you join the platform you get $10,000 for practice. And, you can practice either in Spanish or English or Even in Portuguese.

5. Best Small Business to Start in Peru in 2021. 

Profitable business ideas for Peru

While Peruvian food restaurants are still profitable business ventures in Peru, we don’t know when the industry will fully heal from the COVI 19 effects.

For that reason, I’ll go with beauty Centers on this.

Without any doubt, the aesthetic and beauty sector is constantly growing all across South America.

I can not emphasize more that men and women from different segments of the Peruvian population are increasingly getting concerned with the care of their bodies and their well-being.

Do you know what this means?

Most people in Peru are willing to invest in their bodies.

Be it on massage services, waxing, manicures, or skin treatments.

As an entrepreneur, you can choose to use this information for your benefit or ignore it together.

If you choose to use it, thumbs up.

If it is not your fit, then you may want to consider investing in indices, stocks currencies crypto, and metals.

You can invest with the Olymp Trade mobile app to start earning after every one minute.

6. Best Small Business to Start in Chile in 2021.

Chile is one of the countries in South America that’s ideal for startups.

Apart from its good infrastructural facilities which favor all kinds of businesses, Chile prides itself on supporting new businesses through different programs set up to aid startups.

For example, Chile offers foreigners who are interested in setting business in Chile incentives such as: –

a. Startup capital,

With all these benefits, what’s the best small business to start in Chile in 2021?

7. Best Small Business to Start in Ecuador in 2021.

Business ideas in Ecuador

Ecuador is a fast-growing economy in South America.

And like in Chile, Uruguay, and Paraguay, the business environment in Paraguay is less competitive and with more possibilities for profitability.

Take for example the soap, cosmetics, and candle-making business; it is something that anyone can start and it is still as lucrative as it is profitable in Ecuador.

Other businesses to start in Ecuador for success include:

a. Poultry business

b. Cattle breeding

c. Fresh juice business

d. Wall painting and graffiti cleaning business

e. Online tutoring

f. Become a web developer

g. Sell used cars.

If you don’t like any of the business ideas in this list, consider online trading.

As a trader, you can make money by speculating the outcome of different assets over a fixed duration of time.

In Olymp Trade, the minimum time for trading is 1 minute but you can also open positions that last as long as 23 hours.

8. Best Small Business to Start in Bolivia in 2021.

Small  business ideas in Bolivia

There is no day that you will talk about profitable businesses in Bolivia and not talk about natural gas, silver, zinc, lead, tin, gold, quinoa, soybeans, and soy products.

But while it is a capital extensive and tedious process to extract natural gas or zinc; it isn’t so much a task to grow soybeans and to make soy products.

For that reason, I wouldn’t think twice about advising you to start agriculture or sell agricultural produce in Bolivia.

If agriculture isn’t your forte though, consider starting your business in the hospitality space.

i. Start a food delivery business in Bolivia

ii. Become a food tours agent in Bolivia

iii. Start a tours and travels agency

iv. Become a computer repair agency

v. Start a childcare service in Bolivia

vi. Open a cafeteria business

vii. Purify and sell bottled water in Bolivia

Or better yet, work from home as a trader in Olymp Trade.

Start here.

9. Best Small Business to Start in Paraguay in 2021.

Top 10 business ideas for Paraguay

If you live in Paraguay and would like to start a profitable business in 2021, consider something in hospitality.

How do I mean?

I mean the tourism industry in Paraguay is growing just as fast as in any other South American country.

And it goes without saying that all over the world, tourism is very profitable both to hotels, restaurants, pubs, transport among other areas in the economy.

Other than hospitality, tourism, and transport, you can start a business in the agricultural sector, in the security sector, real estate, import, and export, arts, and craft, or even in ICT.

10. Best Small Business to Start in Uruguay in 2021.

Of course, the list can not be conclusive without talking about Uruguay.

Which small business can you start with low capital in Uruguay?

Just like in all the other countries in South America,

  1. Agricultural businesses will do good
  2. Businesses in the hospitality space will do better
  3. Businesses in the travel and tours industry will do great.

But of course, there are some emerging trends like in the technology space, work from home jobs, mining… you name it.

And of course, the entire list is dismissible if there is no mention of online trading which currently is what almost everyone in South America does.

My recommendation, use Olymp Trade if you need the best results. And, if you want to trade in your local language.
