-A recent survey has brought to light spending habits of the youth in Ghana
-While young men spend their income and ‘hustle’ money on game of chance, women also have a peculiar comfort zone where most of their finances end up
A recent survey conducted by Geopoll has revealed that majority of the youth spend their money on non-productive activities which may come to bite them in the near future.
Young ladies who have been employed in particular, have a peculiar spending habit, with about 51 per cent of their income ending up in self-enhancement activities.
Such activities mostly involve buying of beauty products such as make-up, and engaging in expensive body-enhancement procedures such as skin-bleaching and cosmetics.
Boys were no better either, with the working class in the male department spending their significant amount of their salaries in game of chance and other forms of entertainment.
The survey was taken in a number countries including Ghana, where ladies and gents aged between 18-35 took part in the survey.
From the results, the employed persons only dedicated 32 percent of their income on savings, mostly to further their education. This seems to suggest that after a proper school course, they would be down to zero-again.
Another interesting statistic is that 32 percent of the girls who spent most of their available money on cosmetics and beauty were unemployed and fully dependent on their parents.
