Women in Pakistan are not behind in this race. They are on their journey to take over the world with their exceptional skills, wit, and talent. They have dominated most of the fields contrary to what the stereotypes would suggest about the eastern women, be it working at offices, or from home. However, a lot of women still encounter innumerable problems when it comes to working outside. There are certain social or cultural issues that bar them from working outside home. Many women cannot continue working after getting married owing to their household responsibilities, despite their higher education. Other don’t have the permission to step into a male dominant field.
These women can work to earn online. There are a lot of options which only require signing up and know-how of digital tools to put our skills to use.

1. Home based food business
Cooking is an amazing skill; easy to do, and therapeutic. However, in today’s fast-moving world, not many people have time to take a slot out for cooking three times a day. Usually, the working people rely on restaurants serving loads of junk food, but this clearly is an unhealthy alternative. This opens up opportunities for women who cook well to put their business online and monetize their skill to provide home-based food to everyone, who are either tired of eating outside or don’t really have time to cook.
A home-based food business would need an active online presence, along with some great marketing skills to make people crave the delicious but simple meal. One can also try hands at baking and make a good sum out of the money because who doesn’t like cakes? They are needed at every party and are the first priority for all kinds of celebrations.
Many people are also becoming diet and health conscious, and they don’t find the healthy alternatives. Clean, organic and healthy food made of healthy ingredients has a big demand, especially because it is not available just anywhere, and many people would love buying a healthy but tasty meal.
2. Online boutique
A lot of Pakistani women are familiar with designing clothes, and it is an inborn talent because most of the women are all about beautiful clothes. This knowledge can help them with their business idea. An online group or page with some friends who are really into dressing nice, along with others who wish to dress nice but don’t have the time to invest in shopping would be a great start to make money out of this business.
This business just needs a little bit of diversity when designing clothes, so it would suit everyone’s tastes, and good photography skills so the dress will receive the attention that it needs. Many men and women are ready to spend a generous amount of money on clothes that look great.
