An inspiring South African has proven that a little can certainly go a long way.
The Free State single mother, Qwali Lekheakhoa, used the R350 Covid-19 relief grant to put her skills to good use through her furniture-making business.
The 27-year-old used the grant money to kick start her business where she transforms old tyres into incredible pieces of furniture.
With the help of the grant money, Lekheakhoa was able to purchase a second-hand power drill and couch stapler. Briefly News initially shared a post of the talented woman on social media with the hashtag #TuesdayMotivation and Mzansi was loving her remarkable work.

Mtshali stated that he fondly remembers the round baby faces of his first customers. Those kids are now adults who bring their own children to buy ice cream from his soft-serve van that has turned him into a popular name on the streets.
