      Thanks for arlene for subscribing :) I hope my articles somehow brings enlightenment to the path where you want to go :)

      For additional investments, 1k minimum.

      It’s good na magttry ka na maginvest, that’s the best step (in my opinion) para mas matutunan mo kung panu ba talaga maginvest.

    Mr. Nick Raquel,

    According po sa mga posts mo there’s no initial investment in FAMI. Paano po sa second investment, magkano?
    Gaano rin po ka-liquid ang investment sa FAMI?

    • Nick Raquel

      Hi arlene,

      Meron pong required initial investment ang FAMI, 5k to be specific. I think you’re pertaining to opening an online monitoring account :)

      In case na gusto m ng iredeem ung investment, you just have to submit the required forms.
