This is one of our poorest households in the Lugangeni sample. Babalwa* is 38 year old divorced woman living with her thirteen year old son. She has four other children who stay with their respective fathers. Her main form of income is casual work that she does for neighbours. She either makes mud bricks or does gardening or cleaning. Her other income is earning R150 per month from student boarders. She has very few financial instruments – only saving in the house and credit from her neighbour, from whom she bought an apron. She used to belong to a burial society but she left because she was worried about affording the payments.

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 begining 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.
