Use the debt reduction calculator to determine how long it will take to pay off all of your debt or find out what the result will be if you pay an additional amount towards your debt.
These are really important things to know when managing your debt. For example, If I have a personal loan of R25 000 at 12% interest and I am paying R700 per month towards that debt, I will have paid it off in 3 years and 9 months, R6085 of which will be interest.
If I pay an additional R200 towards the loan, I will have paid it off in 2 years and 9 months and saved R1650 in interest.
