Opening a small business in Santa Cruz, Bolivia

Hows the business in Santa Cruz when it comes to convenient store like a mini super market or cafe? Is it possible to start a small shop with capital of $5000? Any idea or suggestions please?

good one NEW

With that amount you can even start a good motor vehicle shop. The idea of starting a supermarket is perfect. But you must first know what the SantCruz like to have more. What are they lacking of. What is new that is not available in the Sanatcruz.Meaningful Use

Hi Mohammed!
There are many people from India here, in downtown Santa Cruz, but I don´t know if they go for fast food chicken.

You could do fast food chicken and offer Bollychicken in addition to the plain fried chicken.

Or you could open a restaurant that offers authentic Indian food, probably more expensive to start.

I have your email and I will do some more research.

@Boliviabellafan,Thanks for throwing the comment on my title. Well how about small fast food with fried chicken as you said? Do they like Indian spicy food? Also about general store(convenient store in any residential/commercial area)? You may share your mail address if its suitable for you, I would like to mail you to get more details. Thank you again.
