Africa Melane interviewed Hayley Parry - a money coach and facilitator at 1Life.

Inflation is spiralling in South Africa, and around the world.

The latest figure of 6.5 percent breaches the Reserve Bank’s inflation target, meaning higher interest rates are almost a certainty, as it attempts to gain control.

Africa Melane interviewed Hayley Parry, money coach and facilitator at 1Life.

We’ve got pain ahead. The time to tighten belts is yesterday… Now that the inflation target has been breached, we’re probably going to have more increases in interest rates. The cost of debt is going to increase too…

Hayley Parry, Money coach - 1Life

The sooner you get on top of your personal finances the better… We don’t know how long the Ukraine situation will be in place for. We don’t know how much longer inflation will rise before it peaks…
