Good Day Everyone,

I am looking for a low minimum investment vehicle for a Roth IRA for a friend of mine. So far the best I have found is $3,000. My friend does not have very much money but would like to begin setting aside money for retirement. I recommended a Roth, but then realized that mutual funds tend to have pretty high starting minimums even if they allow additional contributions at the $25 or $100 level. My friend has $500. Is there anywhere that she can get started with only that much?
