CEBU CITY, Philippines – His father taught him to save 20 percent of his earnings every month.
Real Bank chairman Jose G. Araullo said he followed his father’s advice and never experienced a financial crisis.
Remembering childhood lessons on being thrifty, Araullo is now bent on encouraging public school students the value of saving.
“I was trained that way. My parents instilled in me the importance of saving money. I thought this is a very good lesson and I want to impart this to students,” Araullo told reporters on Monday.
Such childhood values have become a catalyst for a nationwide advocacy campaign to encourage public school students to save part of their allowance in a bank.
Araullo led education and bank officials in the launching of the bank’s “Bata… Bata… Mag-impok at Magsinop” program at the Mandaue City Central school.
