The financial wellness of many South Africans is of concern, especially when coupled with the current unstable economic climate.
South Africa’s high unemployment rate aside, amongst employed South Africans, many are not saving for their future, yet alone for unforeseen immediate expenses.
According to the Bureau for Market Research at UNISA, on average, households earning between R33 334 and R57 333 per month, have no net income available for discretionary savings.
An unplanned expense could result in individuals falling into a debt spiral that could take years to recover from.
If we are serious about our future, we need to start paying attention to our finances. This is an ongoing process which needs to be managed and requires a bit of effort and discipline.
