On December 19, 2018, OK Bank launched the second Financial Literacy Training Program for its Microfinance clients. The program is aimed to not only help clients in bettering their savings-approach towards their business but, to also enrich them with knowledge of better fund management and investment decisions. The clients were welcomed and addressed by the President and CEO of OK Bank, Atty. Jerry T. Opinion. The training lecturer was one of OK Bank’s Independent Director Ms. Liberty B. Valderrama, who has a mixed working background from insurance and banking industries. The training program was met with positive reviews and throughout the training program several clients asked a variety of questions ranging from better savings deposits to habitual daily financial budgeting.
The program was a success; it ended with the awarding of certificates and picture taking of clients who attended. The bank sincerely thanked all the clients that freed up their time from their respective businesses to attend this training program and many of them have expressed their gratitude for the bank’s effort to maintain in a very good relationship with the clients.
