    if i happened to be given the said amount 3 million naira as stated,i will section the money into enterprenurship such as photography which i believe it is a lucrative business such that profit is made from it. Above all, part of the money will be aloted to farming ( irrigation farming) because most farmers concentrate on producing their farm product only during the raining season, while i want to use that opportunity to produce such crops to meet up with the customer demand even during the dry season.

  4. Kolawole Ifeoluwa Dolapo

    If I was given #3million I will diversify the money and start an ICT business, enter into AGRO( rearing of cat fish) and register my business name with corporate affairs commission and advertise it.

  5. I will start the business very soon

  7. Alabi Qudus Olalekan

    If I would be given 3 million by the federal government, I’ll spend 1 million to invest my mom on a provision store and my junior sis with her fashioned design shop and then the remaining 2 million to invest in a unisex saloon business which I’ve been dreaming to have for a while now. Thank you
