Meet a 15 year old girl in Limpopo who built her mother her dream house through selling fat-cakes at school and local bus stop.

Lerato Thaba is a very briliant grade 10 learner .When she noticed how her mother was having difficulties to raise them , she thought of means to help her mother to support her and her 2 siblings since her father had passed away and they had noone to rely on who could care for her and her family except for her mother.

“I always dreamt and wanted to be a businesswoman one day when I grew up .So when this opportunity in disguise presented itself I took it with both hands and it really worked for me and my family, “she said.

She prepared lemonade with the lemons that nature gave her .”I used to get up early around 3 in the morning and start preparing the dough to make fat-cakes. Around 6 I would be done and I’d go to the bus stop to sell the fat-cakes and when I had some left ,I would take them to school and sell them there.”she said
