If you ask many Sassa beneficiaries what they did with their R350 only few can give you answers. Most of them just buy alcohol and spend it on useless things.
Khomotso was unemployed at the time, so she was unable to do anything to express her gratitude to her mother. She made the decision to save the 350 dollars she was receiving from the unemployment benefit. People are still perplexed as to how she was able to accomplish this with the meager funds she receives from sassa in the first place. Some people find it difficult to comprehend that she was able to construct the house with the 350.
Others, on the other hand, consider her to be an inspiration to young people. Some individuals believe that this lady was not in a position to receive the 350 since she has another source of income and hence was not eligible. If she was going to be in need of the hardship award, she was not going to save the entire amount.
People, on the other hand, are expressing a range of feelings in response to this lady's accomplishment. It may seem impossible to those who haven't been able to save money, but nothing is impossible when you work hard. Everyone in South Africa should be proud of her, including those who aren't actively seeking employment. This lady even went so far as to purchase furniture for her mother's residence.
She purchased her a bed, as well as a fan in case the house was too hot to sleep in. It's a two-room house that was lovingly constructed by this unemployed lady out of her own pocket money. Anything is always achievable, but only if you think that you are capable of doing it. This has opened the minds of many to the fact that you do not have to be a millionaire in order to make your parents proud of you.
