    Should "to become financial stable" be "to become financially stable?"

    If "stable" has to be an adjective here.

    Context:

    retrenchment

    n.
    1. entrenchment consisting of an additional interior fortification to prolong the defense
    2. the reduction of expenditures in order to become financial stable

    Yes - it should be 'financially'.
