A smart South African entrepreneur named Pule Museki from Hammanskraal turned a joke into a success after buying five Bajaj Qute cars to start a successful business.
According to an inspirational post that was shared online, the man uses the cars to courier products during the day and as Ubercarts at night that pick up and drop off workers who work until late.
"Inspirational. Turned a joke into a way out of poverty," @Sandile1m wrote in the motivational post.
South Africans who initially cracked a number of hilarious jokes about the tiny cars have now started praising the young man for using them as a ladder to success. Read a few of their comments below:
"Thinking outside the box is what defines an entrepreneur."

"All the best."
"Love to see such."
"This is beautiful."
In similar inspiring Briefly News, a woman identified as Mignon Francois has further proven that starting from the bottom takes people to the top. Francois and her family struggled through life when she moved to Nashville, Tennessee, with her then-husband, Entrepreneur reports.
According to the woman, her life changed for good when a neighbour who knew she had baking skills ordered some cupcakes. The neighbour had ordered 600 cupcakes at $1 (R14) each, but since Francois didn't have the money to purchase ingredients for all 600, they agreed that she would bake 60 first. In her words:
"When I closed the door, I had a real come-to-Jesus moment with God and said like, 'Seriously? You offer me this opportunity when I don't have any money? I literally have $5 to feed us.' "
She finally turned that $5 (R73) into $60 (R886 as per current rate) after delivering the 60 cupcakes that were agreed upon.
This happened in 2007 and in late 2008, the mum of seven officially founded her company.
