Like a lot of families right now, Aaron’s mother lost her job because of the virus leaving the family financially uncertain. The family was on the verge of losing everything when they invested in Moreno’s business venture.
“I feel happier because we don’t have to struggle as much as before,” Moreno told KABC.
The boy’s business and a GoFundMe page have given the family a chance to buy a house.
Berenice Pacheco, Moreno’s mother, now has a part-time job and the mix of funds gave the family a crucial lifeline. Not only were they able to buy a new home, but they also bought furniture and a car. What started as a dark time has changed dramatically for the family. The GoFundMe page has raised more than $60,000. The money has also helped to bring his sister back from Mexico, where she was sent to live because of financial struggles.
“The best part of what Aaron has done for us is bringing back his sister,” Pacheco told CNN. “It was so hard being without her and we are a whole family again. And I was so happy to see they still had their amazing bond even if they spent so much time apart. It’s such a blessing.”

Meet Aaron and his garden.
The young boy and his mother were on their last $12 when he had an idea of creating a business. According to a GoFundMe account, the young boy convinced his undocumented mother to start a business selling plants to help them make it through the pandemic.
Aaron’s Garden was the business he and his mom created to make some money.
“Aaron and mom have been struggling from being homeless to shelters and bouncing from house to house and now live in a shed,” reads a GoFundMe account. “He came out with the idea of selling plants and starting a business in his yard to be a provider and buy his own hot Cheetos with cheese without having to ask his mom for money.”

People in the U.S. are struggling as the additional $600 in unemployment has disappeared and a second Covid-19 stimulus is stuck in Congress. Aaron’s plant selling is helping his family during one of the most difficult times in modern U.S. history.
Way to go, Aaron.
