“PISOBILITIES” is a portmanteau word coined by CFE. It refers to one’s ability to earn and manage his one peso and the possibilities of making that same one peso work for him. Each person’s financial profile should be like a one peso coin.  He has two sides that give him more than enough capacity to attain financial independence.  One side represents his ability to generate active income or the income earned when he invests his talent, sweat and time. The other side is his ability to generate passive income or the income earned from savings, otherwise known as investment income. He has to use these two capabilities at the same time.

Pisobilities will help you start your journey towards financial independence. It will equip you with the basics of proper money management-spending, saving, planning and investing. You will realize the value of having and setting financial goals. You will also be introduced to various financial instruments and strategies that can help you achieve your financial goals.
