FInancial Literacy in the Phils

About Time For Financial Literacy

Recent studies show that most Filipinos  would want to retire early as age 50, and that majority consider health as a top concern. However, the sad part is– there is rarely enough savings to sustain an early retirement and only a minimum percentage of these people are prepared to pay for medical costs should an emergency occur.
