CURRENT STATISTICS (Source: FMI August 2013) (Represent Government, Corporate companies and the Private Sector.)

  • There are currently +/-50,6m people in South Africa
  • 19,1m are credit consumers
  • 15m live on grants
  • 11,3m are registered employees
  • 6,3m are tax payers
  • 62% of the credit consumers are behind with their debt

Currently the majority of people in South Africa are battling to make ends meet because they have never been exposed to the basic principles of managing their monthly income.  They end up with an empty bank account a few days after receiving a salary.  Therefore, they have to learn how to stretch their money further.  Managing your finances carefully and implementing proper financial planning will enable you to stretch your income maximally.

This workshop is a journey to assist employees to successfully use and draw up a personal budget to manage their own money.

After this workshop it is each delegate’s responsibility to ensure that the workshop results in changing their financial wellness.

Financially stress free employees result in more productive employees.

Your money can be in your possession for a longer period if you:

  • Know your financial limits and stay within them.
  • Plan before you spend.
  • Know how to hold on to your money for a longer period.
  • Know what you want to do with your money.
  • Know where your money disappears to.

One of the challenges is to manage our finances successfully.
There are very few of us who can boast with a debt free financial record due to ignorance.
The purpose of this workshop is to put financial wellness within your reach and to give you the knowledge and skills to get that financial record of yours as healthy as possible.

It is also intended to empower you to manage your own finances responsibly.
The focus is knowledge, skills, values and attitudes in relation to your own situation…
