About Debt Wise

Leena Van Wyk saw the need to launch a debt counselling firm around 10 years ago.

While working at a debt collection company, Leena noticed the heavy burden and stress that debt leaves on people, which is attributed to a poor-quality life. When the National Credit Act which introduced debt counselling came about, this signalled good news.

Leena knew that people would finally be assisted and backed by the law. They could manage debt and still keep their possessions while maintaining a better-quality life. The Debt Wise Group family will ensure they go the extra mile when dealing with your situation and concerns.

Major growth in the finance field for Debt Wise

Over the years, Leena experienced major growth in the finance field, facing challenges head-on and consistently pushing to make her brand a success.

Her persistence paid off, and as of late, she was acknowledged as the number one leader in the debt review field. She’s ranked in the top 5 of the debt counselling awards category.

Be proactive and do the right thing

Being acknowledged by the NCR, creditors and other debt counsellors have boosted Debt Review Group's confidence to continue helping South Africans recover from debt and acquire financial prosperity.

Their slogan, “deal with your debt before it deals with you”, speaks of being proactive and doing the right thing if you’re struggling to make ends meet.
