    An HEK in AZ has started a sort-of yard service. Of particular interest is how he financed the equipment he needed to start:

    A 12-year-old boy has taken advantage of a U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Youth Loans program to start up his own business.

    …The program is designed for youths ages 10 to 20 to establish and operate modest-sized, income-producing projects. The projects must be by members of 4-H clubs, FFA or similar organizations, or with a vocational teacher or county extension agent.

    …The loan program requires that the youth borrowers live in the open country or a town of less than 10,000 people and be unable to get a loan from other sources.
