Samke shared the photo on social media
A lady has taken to social media to share photos of the house she's building on a less than N50k salary.
The South African woman with the Twitter handle, @Samke_nkwanyan said it took four months to complete the building of her home as her salary is R2,000 (N49,948.22).
Sharing the photo, she wrote: "😂 she is so small and beautiful like her mom though been through alot took a whole 4 months to finish with momy earning a 2k salary 🕺🏼"
@Samke_nkwanyan went on to say in a follow-up tweet that she did have R10,000 (N250,055.63) in savings.
She took a loan of R5,000 (N124,975.00), which she paid back from August to now. Even with her savings, loan, and salary, she still struggled.
@Samke_nkwanyan said she asked for help from family and friends who did all they could to assist.
Take a look at her tweets below:
South Africans could only feel pride at her lovely accomplishment and shared so in her replies:
"This is very nice. It's the beginning. If you can build a house with R2K then you will do bigger things when God promotes you to another tax bracket. 4 months is even very short. I'm so proud of you and inspired!!!"
"Big or small, it doesn't matter. This is yours, your name is on the deed, woe to whoever has anything negative to say."
"I am proud of you girl."
