Mr. Colayco during his talk

Last Tuesday, July 22, Francisco J. Colayco was invited as a guest speaker in the 9th Knowledge Exchange Conference(KEC) at Century Park Hotel in Manila. His talk focused on the importance of financial literacy for the empowerment of underdeveloped communities. He also dwelt on the significance of the internet in fulfilling this objective. Throughout the talk, he emphasized that the current age is a time where information is vital. The most influential people in the world are not those with lots of properties, but those who possess highly-valued information. With the internet as a tool for financial literacy, more Filipinos will become empowered in reaching for the wealth they deeply desire!

Ariel, in Nang Magising si Juan last July 20, was feeling insecure about his not accomplishing much in his financial life.  Together with his friend, Long Mejia, he tried to think up of businesses but because of other commitments, Long Mejia leaves Ariel on his own.  Ariel decided to sell chickens because he loves to eat chicken and his best brand is Bounty Fresh Chicken, Chooks-to-Go.  He bought frozen chicken from Bounty Chicken and started selling them house-to-house and store-to store.  However, his selling was unplanned.  He even ate some of the chicken that he was supposed to sell.  He realized that he didn’t like that particular business because it was not a business that he really liked  He realized that he could not go on without asking for advice.


He approached Armand Bengco, Executive Director of Colayco Foundation to help him.  Armand explained to Ariel the basic concepts of setting up a business.

After hearing the suggestions, Ariel asks Armand Bengco if he would like to be a partner in his business by putting in money.  Of course, Armand knows better.  You should not agree to being a partner and especially not putting in money into a business that your partner has obviously no expertise in.

On Sunday, July 27, join Ariel again on Nang Magising Si Juan as he continues to try to set up a business. Ariel continues to believe that his talent is in show business.Ariel joins Chooks-To-Go’s Kwela Van road show to impress the brand’s marketing head and consider him as their newest endorser.


We have sponsors for the show like Bulgar, Bounty Fresh Chicken Chooks-to-Go, Mang Inasal and LandBank of the Philippines.  With them, we are able to give all Filipinos information while watching an enjoyable comedy show.  Please pass the word to your family and friends.
