the best business to start is what you are qualified for or rather knows best.

Also depends on the amount of capital U have and how much time U can spend in Ghana managing the business.
It's a different environment and mentality so U will have to learn it.
There are literally millions of opportunities waiting to be tapped.

I agree that you have an advantage in business if you have experience in a particular field but there are entrepreneurs that run many different types of businesses without being qualified for everything they do. The key is to build a team of people around you who have the knowledge that you lack. Ideas is where business is born if you can learn a job you can educate yourself in a particular business. If you have the passion for it you will learn the business.

Those are good points about capital, culture and business management. It's a challenge to start a business period especially if it's in another country. That being said I believe each one of these topics can be addressed with proper planning and one's willingness to submerge yourself into the culture and heartbeat of the people. I like to brainstorm and toss ideas around then I can eliminate certain ideas that wouldn't fit because of capital, etc. For instance I visited Sierra Leone and my guide showed me business opportunities that were needed for that specific countries needs, there were many but she showed me a sample of what could be done. So if anyone wants to toss out some ideas and have a brainstorming session please I would love to hear your ideas.

In the West, there are building supplies shops where U can buy all the tools and materials U need to build anything.
Don't think we have that kind of 1 stop building supplies and tools shop in Ghana yet.

And we are right in the middle of a construction boom. Go figure
