Overseas Filipino Stocks Investors (OFSI) founder and president, Renz Leano was very emotional and teary-eyed while listening to the testimonials of OFSI Batch 8 attendees, as the personal financial literacy sessions concluded on Friday, 18th September 2015 in Hawally, Kuwait.
Mr. Leano introduced the first attendee who shared testimony about the seminar.
“You are one of the best mentors. Thank you so much for sharing your expertise and for boosting participants to understand all the modules. We learned a lot of wisdoms; sabi nga naming mag-asawa, ‘sana noon pa natin eto alam, sana na-enlighten na tayo noon pa about financial literacy’.” said Tom Alcancia, one of the attendees and has been an OFW for more than 20 years.
Tom was emotional too in his testimonial as he lamented why he was not enlightened earlier about financial literacy. But Tom understood that it was never too late.
“Anyhow, I guess it is not too late yet as we can apply the information learned in our investment objectives – growth of income and to properly handle our current assets. Most of all we can share and impart the financial literacy we learned to our children and the young ones”, says Tom as he ended his testimonial thanking Leano and his team.
The five-module seminar for Batch 8 started on August 14. The succeeding modules were conducted on August 21, September 4, 11 and finally on Friday September 18.
M. Arroyo, an IT professional who also completed the sessions was thankful to OFSI. With the seminar he had now the right mindset for strengthening his financial foundation.
“Thank you OFSI and Mr. Renz Leano! Your advocacy has truly changed my financial perspective and the future of my family. Attending OFSI sessions has equipped me with the right mindset, further strengthened my financial foundation and allowed me to better plan my financial future”, says Arroyo.
The attendees were very excited revealing the names of the companies they’re interested as Mr. Leano gave his advice on their choices.
