Help me start my dream Business.

Hello everyone, my name is Dametrius Forney. I am looking to start a soul food food truck and travel to areas of North Carolina where there is a demand. Which is quite a few places. 
For a slight back story about myself. I'm 22 years old. I've been cooking since I was 12 years old. I've worked in restaurants and bakeries since I was 16. My passion is food and serving others. I feel like I have a calling of service. My mother was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer in 2015 and now in 2020 she is under home hospice care, with her health in decline, my older brother is home as her and my 11 year old nephew's primary care. My nephew to whom he and I co-parent. We've opted to keep my nephew home via virtual learning to limit germs coming into mom's contact. This leaves myself as primary income for my household. 
I'm asking for any help possible to accompany the little money that I can put aside when I can. My goal is to have my business up and running before the end of 2022. I don't have the criteria to get a business loan. This will help ease finacial stress from our house and lives, and help give us all a new start. My mom told me "don't let your dreams pass you by" "it's ok to ask for help sometimes". I'm taking mom's advice. It's been my dream since I was sixteen. God bless and thank you so much to those of you that can donate. You'd be changing our lives and bringing a southern staple to a lacking area. And may God bless those of you that do not.
