PINSAN, QuickServants-Ubon Chapter Conduct Financial Literacy Seminar In Ubon Ratchatani


According to a 2011 study by Social Enterprise Development Partnership Inc., one out of every 10 Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) is financially broke, while 80 percent of OFWs return to the Philippines with no savings at all. This alarming situation causes financial distress due to the lack of proper financial literacy or financial education for many OFWs.
