From November 26 to 27, Colayco Foundation conducted a series of financial literacy seminars in Cagayan de Oro. Mr. Armand Q. Bengco conducted the seminar proper to the cannery and plantation employees of Del Monte Philippines.
In both seminars, he strongly emphasized how Del Monte desires their employees to be financially empowered through financial literacy. He praised Del Monte in seriously considering the financial welfare of its workers. Financial independence can be achieved as long as one knows how to handle one’s money. Furthermore, Mr. Bengco stressed the need of the workers to take hold of the things that are within their financial control. Even if they are working at a renowned company, a time will come that they will bid farewell to it. Thus it’s important that they know how to handle their finances well.
After the seminars, some DMPI employees had a one-on-one financial coaching session with Mr. Bengco. They each shared their respective financial concerns. Mr. Bengco gave a suitable advice to each participant regarding the proper monitoring of their money.

No matter how renowned a company is, the uncontrollable fact is that no one can work forever. Everyone has to retire at a certain point. From then on, all employee-employer relationships are severed. Handling expenses will be harder than when one is employed. With the proper financial knowledge, however, this situation can be easily dealt with!

Last November 23 and 24, Mr. Francisco Colayco and the rest of the CFE team conducted a financial literacy seminar for the people of Dagupan. What was supposed to be a small-group affair turned to be a big- community event.
It was a fun-filled weekend for everyone. Everyone was able to listen intently and openly to Mr. Colayco as he discussed the relevance of financial literacy in the lives of the attendees. Along with Mr. Colayco were Mr. Armand Q. Bengco and Ms. Guita Gopalan who also conducted certain parts of the seminar.

It was an early Christmas treat for most people.
Colayco Foundation held two financial seminars last Nov. 17: Pisobilities: Wealth Within Your Reach in the morning, and Investability: Mutual Funds in the afternoon. Mr. Armand Bengco, Executive Director of CFE, handled the two seminars. People were enriched with the proper financial knowledge from both seminars. They also enjoyed Mr. Bengco’s witty and hilarious style of teaching. It was a truly memorable event for everyone!
Here is a comment we got from a seminar attendee who shares his experience during the seminar:
Hi !! Hello to you and to everyone else around and to everybody else in between.
Last Saturday’s Investability / Mutual Funds seminar was one of the best that I’ve had attended regarding
financial matters. Sir Armand’s wit and humour is truly a delight to have with a live audience. It was like, being transported back in time to a variety show comedy bar. He has delivered more than what he has promised, as I listened to him as a guest on the afternoon radio program of Mam Ruth Abao in DZRH last October 26th (she’s always laughing on Sir Armand’s jokes during the whole show, because they really are very funny) and then seeing him in person and in action. It was all well worth it.
Thanks to you and to Sir Armand, to Sir Joel and to all of the staff and crew who have made this event a success. I have gained additional knowledge and wisdom that I could use in improving myself. The seminar has been very educational and informative and of course it was very entertaining.
Thanks for the 50% discounted price as well.
To the Colayco Foundation Family, God bless each and everyone else. My heartfelt gratitude goes to all of
you who are making a difference in the lives of the ordinary Filipinos here and abroad. Keep up the good work.
Good luck and more power on all of your future endeavors as well.
And again, thanks for making this world a better place to live in…
Always remember, to follow your own heart and not someone else’s. Keep smiling !!
