South Africa is still experiencing cold winter days and one social media user shared a heartbreaking image of a mother trying to make some cash. The photo shows the woman sitting next to a busy road selling food.
The social media post is going viral and has attracted Briefly News to look at the comments from the account holder’s followers.
The post reads:
"Why not us? We should give our parents a break... aagg not just living at their homes and doing nothing, just waking up and go chill with friends or at the car wash.”
"This always breaks my heart when I see them on the street.”
"Seeing things like this makes my heart bleed. We know what mama is going through. She braves it all for her family. It's what we as Africans, in general, have become accustomed to doing since our government always fails us. The grant doesn't cover food, let alone other essentials like power, etc.”
"Brethren and sisters, when you become successful in your life, when may parents come first…”
"Our mothers are our heroines. When we realise that lives will be wonderful and prosperous.”
"Lord bless abomama bomthandazo.”
"May God bless them with warmth and strength.”

Looking at stories regarding hustles, Briefly News ran an article that Kofi Boahen, a Ghanaian father of six, has narrated that he is able to take care of his whole family with his menial business of frying and selling local chips, named "atsomor".
In an interview with GBC sighted by Briefly News, the 42-year-old indicated that he started the business with no capital but by learning from his wife and raising some funds from other menial jobs.
According to Kofi, he decided to go into the pastries business after he returned from Cote D'Ivoire during the war in 2002 and settled in a single, basic room with his pregnant wife.
