Debt Solution for Bachelorette

Miss N is a 39-year old single bachelorette living in Hartbeespoort. She earns a monthly salary of R8735.

These days, credit is scarily accessible. It’s all too easy to fall into a devastating debt trap, but a nightmare to claw one’s way back out again. Unfortunately, this is what happened to Miss N when she upgraded her lifestyle using credit.

‘Miss N spends R7940 on just her basic needs’

But the good times did not last long. With the low salary she was earning, she simply could not afford to keep up with this extravagant lifestyle. Before long, she found that she could not afford her debt repayments, let alone her basic living expenses.

Motor Finance R 2,705
Vehicle Maintenance R1000.00
Vehicle Fuel R1000.00

Life, Health & Critical Illness Insurance R700.00
Bank Charges R250.00
Cell Phone R200.00
Total expenses: R7940
Amount available for debt repayment: R795


Miss N spends R7940 of the R8753 she earns just on her basic needs. After Miss N buys the basic supplies she needs on a monthly basis and pays her bills, she only has R795 left to pay towards debt.

‘Miss N owes R4334 per month in debt payments’

Sometimes, she can’t even afford to buy groceries after she makes her debt payments. That’s why she has fallen into arrears on many of her accounts. Now, she may lose her car or have her salary garnished.
