"Kaalaman sa pinansya, malaki ang ganansya! Financial literacy leads to better income. With Green Tiger Markets support of our Bulig Financial Literacy (BFL), we are able to train hundreds of senior high school students from different public schools in the Mindanao area of the Philippines to apply different financial skills effectively, including personal financial management, budgeting, and saving. BFL initiative of Green Tiger Markets will be highly effective because teaching young people about financial management at an early age will impart them with vital knowledge and skills that will surely assist them to make informed decisions as they journey towards life. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. Maraming salamat po." said CEO of Project School Textblast, Andrie "Doc Andrie" Udal.
