Press Release: Money Matters Focus of Klik Books Event

Experts agree that the Philippine economy is looking good. However, no amount of direct investments, infrastructure boom, or low inflation would instantly improve everyone’s money situation. Most Filipinos need to learn how to start planting seeds of wealth now to experience the difference.

KlikLaunch

Klik Books, a new imprint by PageJump, together with many advocacy groups for financial literacy rise up to the challenge. Financial literacy is the common theme of its two titles to be launched on October. 23. Klik Books aims to deliver otherwise dry concepts with humor and engaging design. The imprint aims to popularize technical topics in the Filipino language to reach a wider audience.

To be formally presented is the book Bidang Misis: Paano Tutugon sa Paghamon Habang OFW si Mister by Gitte Quintos. The self-help book delves into the common experiences of OFW families from the point of view of wives and mothers, who are naturally the treasurers of remittances. The book has an introduction by Vice President Leni Robredo.

Also featured is The Adventures of Pepot Kuripot and Dora Gastadora by Burn Gutierrez and Des Feliciano. The illustrated book captures every Pinoy’s money situation in a funny yet very instructive way. “Through this comic book, financial literacy has been made more understandable and enjoyable. Bravo!,” says preacher and entrepreneur Bo Sanchez of the book.

During the launch, the authors will discuss how financial literacy among various sectors of society can be more engaging and meaningful to our countrymen. The event will be held on October 23, 2 to 4 p.m., at Megatrade Hall in SM Megamall. Among the launch partners are LBC and TV5’s OFW TV.
