Mapeyi* is a 73 woman living in a house in an established part of Langa. She came to Langa when she was a young woman with her parents and she inherited their house. Her three grandchildren live with her. All four members of this household are supported by Mapeyi’s old age grant. Every now and then she makes ginger beer to sell, but this is not a consistent business. Mapeyi needed to pay for her daughter-in-law’s funeral in June 2004. She took R250 from her grant, and received R1000 from her daughter, who borrowed at work. She also borrowed R1000 from the local spaza shop, from who she used to take groceries on credit every month. She took the loan in June and managed to pay back the loan from her grant by October. When we left Mapeyi at the end of the studying she was joining a burial society because she was concerned about what she had experienced with her daughter-in-law’s funeral.

End of survey bank account balances include remittances and wages received shortly before the end of the study. Therefore the bank account balance does not necessarily reflect amounts accumulated by respondents. Pension balances at the beginning of the study was estimated based on date contributions started and the current contribution amount. No capital appreciation was assumed. A negative Umgalelo – Saving Club balance reflects a rotating arrangement where the respondent has received more cash than they paid in by the end of the study.

The above tables are for a" typical" month which requires an abstraction from actual data.Average per month is equal to total for time interviewed divided by number of months interviewed. This calculation assumes that large expenditures (such as clothing or school fees) are distributed evenly throughout the year. Note that income may not equal expenditure as financial expenditures and incomes are considered separately.
