Credit awareness events in South Africa

There are approximately 17.5 million credit active consumers in South Africa, but levels of financial literacy are low. Experian South Africa is partnering with institutions and organisations including The Credit Ombudsman, the National Credit Regulator and the Credit Bureau Association to support events and workshops explaining the credit process, recent changes in regulation and financial literacy in general. 59 sessions were held countrywide educating over 6,000 attendees in 2010.
