Story:

  Jones considers himself an entrepreneur. He has created his very own small business selling the sugar cane his family grows. It's one of his favorite activities. This small business helps bring in enough revenue to make a difference in his families economy. Giving just enough money for a little bit of food to help feed his family. His mother also has her own small business, so together, they have learned to get by. However, Jones's school fees are very high for the family. The education is the best and most quality he could receive, but the fees are very difficult for the family to pay. For Term 2, his mother arranged with the Headmaster of his school to allow the son to continue attending, promising to pay back the school fees when they make the money, leaving them in a debt that is continuing to grow. With the lack of school fees, Jones fears that he won't be able to continue learning. His greatest hope is to finish his education strong so he can pursue is dream as a journalist.
