“Dapat tayo ang kumokontrol sa pera, hindi pera ang kumokontrol sa buhay natin.”
Only 25 percent of adult Filipinos are financially literate, according to a survey conducted by an international credit rating agency this year. And when we’re living in financially challenging and turbulent times, we need to be as financially literate and healthy as we can. This is why the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) has been hard at work to create financial literacy modules for people from all walks of life. In fact, they underline that the more vulnerable population are the ones who should be more dedicated to learning more about saving and budgeting, since they are the most affected by emergency financial situations.
In this episode, Fr. Tito Caluag and his trio of distinguished thinkers—Manolo Quezon, Leloy Claudio, and Carlo Santiago—talk to BSP officers Arnel Adrian Salva and Jeniessa Espinosa to discuss financial literacy and inclusivity. We will try answer the questions: Ano ang risks at opportunities ng saving at investing? Kailan ka dapat magsimulang mag-invest? Kapos na nga kami, paano pa kami magse-save?
