The family of an eight-year-old boy was almost on the street because of the crisis and debts. Adults could not find a way out of the situation, and the boy turned out to be more quick-witted.
He came up with the idea of a business and after 8 months he bought an apartment.
Berenice Pacheco with three children was unable to pay the expensive rent of an apartment in Los Angeles on time. Due to the current situation in the world, the woman simply lost her job.
Berenice had to move to a barn, where there were not enough basic conditions for life.
Once, in a joking conversation with her eight-year-old son, Aaron, the woman suggested that he start his own business and learn how to buy toys himself. Berenice quickly forgot about the conversation, but the boy seriously thought about it.
By evening, the boy decided to start reselling plants. He took the $12 he had saved up and bought eight succulents at a nearby market. He managed to resell them already for 16 dollars – a small, but profit.
The boy’s income increased every day, because many adults were giving him generous tips.
Aaron started his own advertising page on Instagram. His story was quickly covered in the media, which further increased the reach of the audience.
Then a group of concerned citizens set up an auction for Aaron’s family on GoFundMe.
Eight months have passed since the start of the business, and thanks to the auction, the boy earned as much as 40 thousand dollars.
This money was enough for the family to buy a tiny, but their own apartment on the very outskirts of the city. And at the same time, the business continues to grow, because more and more people learn the story of an enterprising boy.
Aaron is not going to stop there. He plans to buy better housing for his family next year.
