Riddle: Answers to the coconut millionaire question

The last profile riddle:
My friend told me the other day that he had found coconuts on sale for $5 a dozen. Because there is a large demand for coconuts, he decided to sell them -- for $3 dollars a dozen. Since then, using this scheme, he has become a millionaire. How is this possible?
