Debt Solution for the Millennial

Mr. M is a 25 year old production operator for a security company who stays with his parents in Witbank. He has one daughter, three sisters and both parents, all dependent on him for financial support. He also pays for his little sister’s school fees.

After becoming over indebted through the burden of financially supporting his family, he was placed on debt review to rectify his financial state. Below is a table that sets out Mr. M’s income and expenses.


‘The young Millennial fell upon hard financial times when he took on more debt than they could afford, in order to support his family.’


 TOTAL: R13,000
Vehicle insuranceR700
Food & household goodsR1,600
Life, health & critical illness insuranceR300
Bank chargesR200
Mobile phoneR200
Travel expensesR1,200
Child MaintenanceR800
 TOTAL: R8,100
 Available for debt repayment: R4,900


‘He could not afford monthly debt repayments, on top of essential expenses as his available money was less than half the amount needed’


As you can see from the above table, Mr M’s expenses add up to R8,100. As the total income is R13,000, they were left with R4,900 for debt repayment after expenses.

The below table sets out what Mr M owed towards the debt amount, on a monthly basis, before entering debt review.

 TOTAL: R8,200
 Over-indebted by: R3,300


‘Entering debt review with National Debt Advisors was the best decision Mr. M ever made.’


As we compare what Mr. M earns to the R8,200 they owed monthly, a troubling picture comes to light about their situation. Clearly, they could not afford their debt repayments, on top of their monthly expenses. This is why Entering debt review with National Debt Advisors was the best decision Mr. M ever made.

Capitec multi loan32.65%R2,502.67

 Amount saved monthly: R4,261.49


‘Mr. M now only owes R3,938.51 monthly on debt repayments, which means he is saving R4,261.49 every month thanks to NDA’


The above table looks a lot more positive and realistic for Mr. M. It shows the new low interest rates and instalments that Mr. M’s debt counsellor at National Debt Advisors arranged with creditors. As a result, the family are able to afford their monthly expenses and debt repayments with ease.

Mr. M now only owes R3,938.51 monthly on debt repayments, which means he is saving R4,261.49 every month thanks to NDA. Moreover, NDA also arranged for the interest rates to be reduced, which means he will save a lot of money on interest too.
