I'm one of the people who bought my maize late so I didn't bring much to deposit, only 530kg. I had already sold most of my maize to vendors as I didn't know about the warehouse, and I got a much lower price than I should get if I put my maize in this warehouse - around K40 per kg. Now I can get finance of 70 percent of the value of that maize and I get will a better price when I decide to sell. I am aware of how the price is going to move and we are always told how the prices are going in town by the warehouse staff. My maize is safe here. I am waiting for the price to be a bit better before I sell. The warehouse is well fumigated and also if I ever run out of maize and need food in an emergency I can come and get my produce at any time. I am going to use the money I get from this finance to develop my business of buying relish and selling it in secondary schools and also to buy more livestock for milk production.
