Overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) have an array of possible business enterprises to engage in when they settle back in the Philippines, Sen. Cynthia A. Villar said Thursday during the press launching of the 6th OFW & Family Summit set for November 15.
Villar, a staunch advocate for the protection and welfare of OFWs, said government institutions and agencies and peoples organizations (POs) are always on standby to give advice and assistance to the thousands of OFWs and their families so they can invest their hard-earned savings for their future.
“Our beloved workers do not have to toil abroad forever. Once they have saved enough money, they can come home, put up a small business and spend more quality and happy times with their families,” the lady senator said.
She acknowledged that many OFWs continue to work abroad until their retirement ages to secure a better and more comfortable life for their children.
