At just eight years old, Aaron Moreno has started a business with which he helps his mother pay the household bills.
Berenice Pacheco, Aaron’s mother, had lost her job due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The family, made up of an adult and three children, lives in a shed and began to have financial problems.
The start of a great project
This is how this small businessman, originally from Los Angeles, California, got down to work and started his small plant business, which he named Aaron’s Garden.
It started with little money
The business started in June with the help of his mother and an investment of just $ 12.
So with my last $ 12 in my pocket, I told him we were going to invest it.

With that money, Aaron bought his first set of succulents. From a very young age, he has been curious about plants, so it was not uncommon for him to lean towards this topic for his endeavor.
Has learned a lot
Her favorite plant at the moment is aloe vera, because he has discovered that it has medicinal properties to treat skin problems, such as burns or insect bites.
Profits serve a good purpose
In addition to his small business, a GoFundMe account has helped him raise nearly $ 30,000 more. With that money, they will have the opportunity to get ahead and get a lawyer to fix their mother’s immigration status in the United States.
This little guy is worth gold!
