Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- Their operation is run out of their house and their office is admittedly small. Then again, so are they.

"Me and my brothers have really put hard work into it," Alyssa Moody, 9, said about the candle-making business she runs with the help of her six-year-old twin brothers. 

Each child has a specific job and their parents also pitch in.

"My wife and I sat down with them and we had a little business meeting," father Kevin Moody said. "We explained to them that mommy and daddy are going to give y'all a business loan and with this money you can get your business started."

You can buy their product online or you may run into the sales team out on the road. They visit flea markets and salons and have sold hundreds of candles. Their profits are split between toys, savings, and donations to charity.

"What makes it fun is we all do it together," Darious Moody, 6, said.

The candles come in 26 different scents and have been sold to people all over the country. If you would like to visit their website, click here.
