Albanian families can save about 2,000 euros a year, it takes 143 years to make the first million in their account

 
 Every beginning of the year almost all the Albanians living in Albania set some goals to accomplish, but if one of these is to become a millionaire, unfortunately, we have to tell you that you have to wait some time. More precisely, to get the first million in your account will take you at least 1 century and 43 years…

A middle-income family in Albania cannot save more than 2,000 euros a year. According to the Income and Living Level Survey in Albania, the average monthly income per person in Albania in 2018 was ALL 26,144.

An Albanian family consists of 3.7 members on average, which means that the average monthly income for a family is 96,736 ALL. Whereas the monthly expenditures of a family in the country, including expenses for food, clothing, education, entertainment, lodging and health, are ALL 75,935 according to the Household Budget Survey.

Taking into account the disposable income and expenses that an average Albanian family has, Monitor has calculated that the potential savings over the course of a year is not more than ALL 249,500, or about EUR 2,000.

But how long would it take for this family to become millionaires?

If every year this family would save some money (the 2000 euros left over each year after deducting the expenses), according to the time value of money formula, where we assume an average annual interest rate of 1.5% and take everything else unchanged and constant, it would achieve its goal only after nearly 1 century and 43 years.

The time value of money helps us calculate the value of an asset at a specific future time by assuming a certain interest rate. In this case, an average interest rate is obtained between the interest on the treasury bills, considered as an investment in risk-free securities and the interest on deposits.

If we were not to consider the time value of money, that is, if the 2000 euro had the same present value in the future, a family would need an average of 492 years or about 5 centuries.
