    I will use the money to make a structure to sell my maize that I harvested this year,due to the huge number of people who are around my area and the demand itself ,this structure will help me store my maize and also shelter myself from extream weather conditions such as rain and the sun ,other than than when it comes to cereals in my area people really buy as food is the only product that people can't compromise with
