Or you can mobilize your friends and go into partnership. Most oil men started a business with limited money.
This limiting belief In our mind holds us back from achieving great wealth in our life.

Now. we have seen, the limiting beliefs. So here are top five oil business in Tanzania
1:Start a petrol station: This is a worthwhile investment in Tanzania that ensures a solid return. But it’s capital intensive. Look, there is a thousands of car on the road and all of which need fuel

For a petrol station, you need start-up capital ranging from 450millions to 500millions. The profit margin for this business is mouth-watering. A profit is range Tzsh 100 to Tzs 210 per liter. If you sell 5,000 liters a day, you’ll be making a profit of Tzs210×5000liters= 1,050,000.

And that is the lowest profit you can make after all expenses. But if you will be sourcing oil from a wonderful major supplier who sells products at a reasonable price you’ll earn beyond. If you are keen to go in this business and you don’t have 450 to 500 million starts up.

2:Start oil and fuel transportation business. This Another great way to make money in the oil sector. Your job is to get trucks and transport petroleum products such as diesel, petrol kerosene within Tanzania and beyond.

The funny thing about this business is that you don’t need to store or market products. You get products from the oil depots in Kurasini, You supply to customers cash your money and smile to the bank. You will charge your clients based on destination per liter.

In other words, you will make good money if you got a job to transport oil in Rwanda, Congo than someone who will transport oil in Mtwara.

The risk associated with this business is truck fall, that can be resolved by hiring an honest driver who put safety first in his driving.
Another great challenge is fire outbreak.

The truck might catch fire because petroleum products such as petrol diesel are highly flammable in nature. But get your truck registered with reputable insurance company

4.Launch lubrication oil: The market for this business is huge as the vehicle owners and factories are seriously interested in it. To help their equipment and operation run smoothly. The demand for lubricants, engine oil and base oil continue to climb at alarming rates as  economies and population and emergence of wealthier middle class  expand in Tanzania. According to world bank

5:Fuel importation : People are making millions of dollars annually in this business.

You can come in, And make huge cash. To make out ahead, you should have tank farm to store fuel products.

Importation of fuel is a lucrative business in Tanzania. However, a solid infrastructure, fuel depot and permit and licenses from Ewura are necessary.

Since Tanzania use bulk procurement system to import all petroleum products (Diesel, kerosene, Petrol Jet oil) so, you must be a member of Petroleum Importation Coordinator (PIC), which is the company responsible for coordinating petroleum products in the country.

Also, they prepare periodic petroleum tender to get the winner of the tender.So you will bid for the importation of oil.And the lowest bidder will be given a contract to import petroleum products.

Once you got a job to import fuel, you store in tank farm and sale to wholesalers. Petrol stations owners, a large truck will be your potential customers.

Over To You.
