Managing Cash

When we talk about managing money, we mean having a way to cash your pay check; put your unused money in a safe place; pay your bills; get cash conveniently and when you need it; save money; and send money to friends and relatives.

Do you:

  • Keep all of your cash in your pocket, purse, or drawer until you need it?
  • Borrow money against a future paycheck from a micro-lender?
  • Pay your bills with money orders?
  • Not get bills paid because you don't have time to go to the place you need to pay?
  • Send money to friends or relatives through postal orders or money wiring services?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, you could manage your money better.

  • Open a bank account. Shop around to find the best deal for you.
  • Have your pay check directly deposited at a bank or SACCO. Many employers prefer to pay by direct deposit or electronic transfer.
  • Keep the money in the bank until you need it.
  • Take money out by going to the bank or SACCO or using an ATM or debit card.
  • Pay bills with checks or use online banking.
  • Avoid using micro-lenders.
