2. Bakery – usually profitable in large villages, as well as in small ones if there are no other bakeries nearby

 

These stores may not be profitable in small villages with only a few hundred inhabitants, but should be good idea for bigger villages (over 1000-1500 inhabitants):

4. Kiosk

5. Cleaning shop

6. Technical and construction store

You can easily check, e.g. on Google, what stores are missing in your area.
