Marcellina has dreams…

• To pay as little income tax as possible;

Speed bumps in the road.....

Like every journey in life, we found a few items in that needed to be addressed if Marcellina wanted to achieve her dreams.

The biggest issue for Marcellina was that she was spending more than she earns. She was not actually aware of where her money goes.

She also did not know where to start when it come to understanding how to structure her finances to pay less tax and to build up her house deposit money.

Another concern was that if Marcellina becomes sick and is unable to go to work, she does not have enough money to pay her bills and cover medical costs.
