At home, he saw scavengers picking scraps and asked them about the usefulness of scouting for rust metals.
When they told him about how they sell them out, the business caught his attention. Despite how lucrative the business could be, his father kicked against it.
He struck gold
The man said that even when the company he was selling the metals to asked them to hold off bringing scraps, he started making a big pile of the wastes. At this point, many people in the business had switched to other ways of making money.
When he finally sold the pile, it was worth so much he did not believe how much he was paid by the company. It was like a dream come true for him.
