Where in the world is it easiest to start a business with $100 or less? And which are these small businesses that you can start with $100 or less?

In today’s post, we explore 6 economically sound countries where you can still start a business with $100 and grow it to become profitable.

Beginning with: –

1. Vietnam 

What in the world is Vietnam famous for?

Vietnam is famous for its beautiful beaches, culture, food, and its friendly people.

On average, a person living in Vietnam earns 4.19 million Vietnamese dongs. This is according to the average monthly income per capita report for 2010-2020 by Statista.

If you ask me, 4.19 million Vietnamese dongs is not a lot of money. It is an average of $182 per month.

So assuming someone in Vietnam has saved $100 from his/her many months of earning in a full-time job, which kind of business would they start with that money?

Meaning for only $10, you can become a trader and for staking only $1 you can begin earning real money.

But what is FTT and why do people in Mexico prefer it to other forms of trading?

Fixed Time Trade is a transaction with Olymp Trade to determine the exchange rate of an asset over a fixed duration.

As a fixed-time trader, your task is to determine the amount of the trade (for example, $1) and make a forecast, the rate will go higher or lower from the starting point.
