What is this about?

When you talk to most employed people and students, within no time they mention the word stress. Ask them why they are stressed they will tell you lack of money. On further probing you discover that the problem is not lack of money but poor management of their finance and lack of ideas to generate some extra income without creating conflict of interest with work demands. Most employed and students’ receiving allowances are heavily burdened with debt from various sources. Among these sources, cash loans cause most of the stress.

An effective personal finance management is the best way of dealing with this problem which causes not only individual stress but also social problems and poor performance at work.
