Certain characteristics of financial management strategies of people living in extreme poverty

by   Balazs Bazsalya, et al.

This study presents the structure of financial management of incomes, expenses, and borrowing practices of households in extreme poverty, based on a survey conducted in two disadvantaged regions in Hungary. Additional to that, I shed light on financial management practices of households in extreme poverty based on the analysis of in-depth interviews. I draw theoretical conclusions and explanations, building upon the experiences of empiric materials about the attitudes and behaviors of financial management of households in extreme poverty, and the reasons and consequences thereof.
