She startled a shuttle service that took off, allowing her to get the credit she did not know how to handle. With a high success rate and bad influence, Mokgadi made some detrimental decisions. Racking up credit through purchasing cars and other things, she was left with repayments she just could not make.

Coupled with the harsh effects of Covid, Mokgadi sank due to the large amounts of debt she accumulated by buying 10 cars.

Mokgadi told W24 that she bought a bakkie, a Mercedez, a Golf 7 GTI, and the list goes on. Sis has learned her lesson and is now doing the most to rebuild herself and clear her debt.

"I understand that I have failed, but that is part of my journey; I have learned my lesson right now. I know what I need to avoid in the future. I've learned many lessons. I now know that if you have debts, you must prioritise them first and save up for unforeseen events. Investing in assets is so important.”

Brave woman overcame abuse and uses her experience to help others

A courageous woman who overcame physical and emotional abuse is using her experience to help other women. 28-year-old Matimba Makaringe, from Tzaneen in Limpopo, shared that she once suffered third-degree burns as a result of her abuse.

She, therefore, spent several weeks in hospital and couldn't walk for three months, Briefly News gathered. Her grandmother also passed away before she had fully recovered.

In addition, her ex-boyfriend left her with a large car finance debt and she discovered she was pregnant as well. Sadly, her depression caused her to lose her baby just four months into her pregnancy.

Fortunately, she remained brave and didn't give up. Matimba subsequently started MissCourage, a project through which she reaches out to women facing similar challenges.

“I counsel women who’re suffering from all sorts of abuse. I first tell women about my life story before helping them,” she shared.
