Paying for kaffaarah instead of fasting

Q: If I do not have an income, but I have around R3000 saved up, will it be permissible for me to give kaffaarah for broken vows in the form of three days fasting or is it necessary to give the kaffaarah (several kaffaarah, around +/- 10) in money form? 

A: You must pay how much you can manage and fast for the rest.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
