AbstractUntil recently, personal financial management has become increasingly important for consumers as in the past. Literature indicates that consumers in rural and low-income areas are the most financially vulnerable and depends mostly on unsecured loans to finance their daily expenses. The primary objective of this study was to evaluate the level of financial literacy among adults in Vhembe District Municipality in Limpopo, South Africa. The results indicate that the level of financial literacy among adults in Vhembe District Municipality is low (38.73%). The low levels of financial literacy have serious consequences for an adult’s personal financial management skills and lead to their inability to make correct financial decisions. The study concludes by suggesting interventions that could help adults to improve their level of financial literacy, manage and sustain their financial well-being.
