Mothers are special and save savvy

2017-05-11 06:03

Mothers are special, save savvy and bitter-enders. It is time to give a big shout out to all the South African mothers especially on Mother’s Day which will be celebrated on Sunday, May 14th.

Although economic times are uncertain and difficult, mothers still tend to put a few bucks away for their children each month.

Mothers can face tough financial challenges, but still continue to try to give their children the best possible future. Zeeva’s team has compiled some statistics (see below) when it comes to finances and single mothers versus married moms. Over 3 200 female respondents took part in the “2017 Smart Woman, Smart Money” survey. To give an indication of the respondents: 47% are single moms, 30% are married moms and 22% are single ladies. Thus over 70% of the ladies that took part have children.
