    I am wring this mail to your from south america. I need your advice for my nephew. I want him to get occupy after his school too. So I want to know if you can advice me some sort of business for him so that he can get occupy. Purpose of this business is not to earn money, is to just get his pocket money and to let him learn something new and same time get busy. He has chosen commerce as his stream. and he is kind of medium range child. His parents are not much educated but still they can help him if he start something from home. Location of his home is in residential area in a lane and little far from the main market about 20-30 minutes by feet. Your kind words are really appreciated.

      Your nephew can start some home based business. It is not possible for him to produce any industrial item. he can probably start something related to service industry and also some food related small scale business. Since the market is near b, he can start food related business which will surely work.
      Thank you.
