This is easier to sell because it can be used whether it’s sunny or rainy. It’s comfortable to use and easy to carry around.

People who work outdoors are more likely to buy this product. This is also in demand for motor cycle owner like me.
4 Hot drinks
Coffee and hot chocolate drinks are the most popular drinks during rainy season. It warms up your body pretty good. No wonder you can find coffee vending machines in almost every corner here in Manila.
5 Congee and noodles
It’s nice to eat these kinds of food during rainy season. Just like coffee, it warms you up. You can put up a stall and serve congee and noodles.

Cars and motor cycles are expensive. Owners will definitely protect their cars and they are the perfect target market for this product.
8 Services To Sell During Rainy Season

Be a personal assistant that deliver and pick up things. Just like Hey Kuya!
2 Waterproofing services
Concrete tends to crack. That’s a fact. I know because I’m a civil engineer. Be a waterproofing contractor.
3 Roofing repair services
Does it also rain inside your house? Most likely, you have a damaged roof. You can offer services that fix roofing problems.
4 Plumbing services
Offer your neighbors to fix their damaged downspouts. Who knows they might also have problems with their drainage systems.
5 Water pump machine rental
This can be a good business all year round but pumping machines are more used during rainy days especially when there are floods.
6 Laundry services
This is the best time of the year for laundry shops. Since air drying in homes is not efficient during rainy season, people go to laundry shops.
7 Car wash services
Since roads are mostly wet during this season, cars will be dirtier. And this means more opportunities for car washing business.
This is the season all farmers are waiting for because water for their fields is free and plenty.
