Series Summary:

Research about the financial habits of South Africans reveals shocking facts: we overspend, we don’t save and we have limited knowledge of how to make our Rands and cents work for us. Over the course of 5 lessons, this series lays the foundation of a responsible, informed financial life…we set financial goals, dispel myths around money and ultimately set the student up for financial health. The entertaining lessons are packed with age-appropriate guidance, top practical tips to apply to the learners’ lives and a task that underlines the importance of a specific financial habit, all wrapped up in a slick, modern aesthetic. 

The series is hosted by well-known public personality, Hlubi Mboya-Arnold.
