DUBAI: A technician who has been working in Dubai for the past 12 years was among 7 lucky overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who recently won Dh10,000 each at a raffle draw held through what was dubbed as “Winter Promo” of UAE Exchange, one of major money remittance centers in the UAE.

Khomini Ampatuan Utto, who has two kids back home – an eight-year-old and a four-year-old, said he will use the money to expand his farm in the Philippines.

“I am happy. Malaking help po ito sa pamilya ko. Gagamitin ko yung pera pandagdag invest sa land farm,” he said.

Aside from Utto, Michelle Sanchez, head of Philippine Corridor Marketing at UAE Exchange, said the other lucky winners were Francis Romero, Emilie Joy Aquino Callejo, Wilson Mitra, Geraline Per, Alfredo Jr. Boon and Nomer Alejo.

Callejo, a procurement assistant, said she will use part of the winnings on her condo investment in Quezon City which is scheduled for turn over this March. Another part, she said, will go to investing in the stock market.

Per, a domestic helper, for her part, said she will use the money to settle land issues back home. “Nakasanla kasi,” she said.

Sanchez said this biggest batch of OFW winners won during the Nov. 19, 2018 – Dec. 29, 2018 Winter Promo period of the remittance center.
