10 ways to take control of your finances

Do you struggle to manage and control your finances? Do you have difficulties budgeting, saving and investing? Here are ten ways you can start to take control of your finances today:

1/ Creat a budget: Alwats track your income and expenses to understand where your money is going. This will help you identify areas where you can cut back and save.

2/ Save Constintenly: Set aside some amount of your income every month for savings. Consider opening a high-interest savings account to maximize your earnings. For instance Co-op Bank Kenya Hekima Saving Account gives you a high interest rate. (3%+ interest rate).

3/ Reduce unnecessary expenses: Cut back on luxuries and focus on your needs. Cancel unused subscriptions, cook at home instead of eating out, and compare prices before making a purchase.

4/ Pay off high-interest debt: Prioritize payments on debts with high interest rates, such as credit card debt or personal loans. Paying these off will save you money in the long run. (If you have more loans try getting a consolidated loan with lower interest to pay them off. Co-op Bank Kenya has the this product for you)

5/ Invest more and wisely: Explore different investment opportunities, such as stocks, or real estate. Research and seek advice from financial experts to make informed decisions.
