“The environment is challenging at the moment, and we’re addressing relevant issues, including rebuilding your finances post-Covid-19, bouncing back from retrenchment and saving through stokvels,” Mwandiambira says. “Come on this journey with us and tackle your money challenges head-on. Let’s find our #waystosave – it’s never too early to start.”

Thami Cele, head of savings and investments at Everyday Banking, Absa Retail and Business Banking, emphasises that while saving in the current environment might seem challenging, it’s important to have a holistic understanding of your financial situation and focus on what you can do.

“It’s time to arm yourself with the knowledge to access tools and make sound saving and investment decisions,” Cele says. “The #waystosave initiative will last well beyond July Savings Month and will help people access the expertise and help they need to get on a solid financial footing.”
