When a Goose teaches children on money matters they listen!

June 10, 2018

SHE'S not a financial consultant but a mother who simply wanted to teach her children about entrepreneurship and savings.A simple activity Nina Othman came up with to teach her children the value of money has led to the creation of Grow the Goose, a social enterprise aimed at teaching children financial responsibility.Nina was pregnant with her third child when two of her children, then aged 6 and 4, asked her to buy them roller shoes.Instead of giving them what they wanted straight away, she told them they would have to help make some money to buy the shoes.Her children suggested they sell fried chicken after watching a cartoon character do that to raise money. Nina suggested they sell healthy chicken and lamb sausages made by a friend instead.
