Do you still remember that investment TV show that aired in GMA News TV (Channel 11), sometime in August or September last year? That show, although lasted only for 12 episodes, that inspired its viewers to take responsibility in improving their financial lives, securing not only themselves, but most importantly, the people they love?
Who would forget? Yes, it’s Pesos and Sense, hosted by no other than, Mr. Aya Laraya.
Yes, it wasn’t the first TV show in the Philippines to air investment-related discussions, but, as far as I know, the only investment show in the country that have focused that discussion for the masses.
They made everything simple for an average Filipino to understand. The best feature of their show is that everything is laid out in a language understandable by every Filipino – ang wikang TAGALOG.
What’s up with that and What’s up with them?
In my aim to partner with a lot of individuals and institutions to use MFP’s growing influence in making all types of investments accessible to everyone, I’ve contacted Pesos and Sense and invited them to be one of the authors of MutualFundPhilippines.com.
“Definitely!” That was the Executive Producer’s response to my invitation.
And to further flatter my humble heart, I was remembered by the P&S team since I’m one of the active fans that participated in their Facebook page when they were just starting out. Hey! I didn’t expect that =)
After the TV Show – The Future and Beyond!
The TV show wasn’t the end of Pesos and Sense’s production, and definitely not the end of Mr. Aya Laraya’s advocacy to educate. It was, in fact, the beginning of more concrete actions to further promote financial literacy here in the Philippines.
Pesos and Sense’s Facebook page didn’t fade out after the final episode. Instead, the page continued to bloom, reaching milestones after milestones. The production team kept the fans engaged by posting regularly, just like saying “hey, we aren’t dead yet!”
Aya is still there, answering every bit of question within his field of expertise. A fantastic man indeed!
Presently, the Pesos and Sense team is conducting seminars, still headed by Mr. Aya Laraya. The first run started sometime in April, and I was told that this would continue on a regular basis.
Aside from the series of seminars, the Pesos and Sense production team is planning to publish some good books – something that the fans should be looking out for.
