Our vision for a kid’s vendor pop up shop came to light when we realize that most children in our neighborhood are not being given the opportunity to start their own business. There are very few places that teach children about money and how to invest it. As an adult that has opened up businesses and faced many struggles In this regard, we would like to provide guidance to children starting their own businesses without experiencing some of the problems we encountered. we would love the opportunity to counsel them and give back to my community. we love children and we truly believe that they are our future. They can and will shine bright and make a difference in the world.
