TO PROMOTE financial education, Iloilo City Government through the Local Economic and Investment Promotion Office, in coordination with Atikha, conducted a Family Income Management Training for Families of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in Hongkong at Penthouse, City Hall Nov 7, 2017.

We want to help the migrants and their families in changing their behavior towards saving,” said Jose Felino Resol, Jr. Atikha area development coordinator.
Fifteen participants listened to topics on Duality of Migration, Achieving Migration Goals, Family Income Management, Saving, Investing, Protecting yourself, Borrowing, Getting Out of Debt, and Family Management.
