South Africans are falling into more debt due to the ever rising cost of basic living and the cost of credit. It is a statistical fact that more than half of our population is unemployed and in debt. Therefore scraping together whatever they can to survive.

Even high-income households can very quickly fall into debt and not see a way out with creditors knocking at their door for collection.

Debt counseling and Debt review will usually be the first remedy against bad debt but in certain situations, this is too little too late.
