Unemployed mom wins bakkie

Life will never be the same for unemployed Nolubabalo Mboniswa after she won a Toyota Hilux bakkie in AfriSam’s “Get Lucky, Win a Bakkie” promotion.

Mboniswa intends to use the bakkie to pursue business opportunities to generate an income for her family after 14 years of unemployment.

On March 14, Mboniswa, a single mother of five, purchased twelve AfriSam All Purpose Cement bags from Build It in Libode, to be used to build a home for her family.

Little did she know that her AfriSam entry was her ticket to a new life.

Shortly after purchasing the cement, Mboniswa entered the AfriSam promotion by following the easy instructions on the in-store promotional leaflet.

Three months later, on June 3, she received a call from AfriSam, confirming that she was the March winner of the monthly grand prize – a brand new Toyota Hilux bakkie.

Being unemployed for more than a decade, Mboniswa has been struggling to make ends meet or to afford a decent life for herself and her five children.

However, the new bakkie has opened new doors of opportunity for her and she will now be able to pursue her dream of starting a business.

She plans to buy and sell live chickens and vegetables to provide for her family.

In AfriSam’s Get Lucky, Win a Bakkie promotion, customers stand a chance to win one of four Toyota Hilux Bakkies per month, as well as instant data.

The promotion commenced in March 2020 but was paused at the end of that month due to Covid-19 and the restrictions on construction during lockdown levels 5 and 4.

The promotion will resume on July 1 and ends on September 30.

However, all entries received during April, May and June 2020 will be included in the draw.

“We are excited about the many possibilities our Get Lucky, Win a Bakkie promotion has created for Nolubabalo and her family,”AfriSam advertising and promotions specialist Michelle Reid said.

“At AfriSam, we are grateful that the products we manufacture make a very real difference in our country.

“But for us it is so much more than just our products or the structures that our products are used for, it is about the possibilities that our products create.

“We believe in creating concrete possibilities and for Nolubabalo we have created a possibility for a better and brighter future,” Reid said.

Mboniswa said: “I would like to thank AfriSam for hosting this promotion and awarding me with such a needed prize.

“The bakkie will certainly change my life. I am incredibly grateful for what they have done, it is evident that the company really cares for their customers and society at large.”
