Irvin Mashele made headlines recently by selling atchar on the streets while dressed in immaculate suits.
As Briefly.co.za reported, he used his impressive sartorial sense as a marketing tactic and it worked well for him.
The 38-year-old man from Soshanguve, Pretoria, has grown his business substantially since then, according to Twitter user Tumelo Mapaa.
Tumelo revealed that Mashele was making around R1,500 a day last year. However, she did not indicate how his business has grown.
Nevertheless, her tweet provoked a lively debate among her followers. Many said Mashele's approach inspired them.
Many tweeps also praised Mashele for proving that nothing is impossible. However, others felt that they need more support for their business ideas.
