OFW shocked to discover that his family is buried in debt despite regular remittance

An overseas Filipino worker (OFW) from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia was welcomed by his family’s debt when he returned to the Philippines despite his regular remittance to his wife.

OFW Winifredo Binondo returned to the country on September 9 when the company he worked for in Saudi begins to go bankrupt.

Expecting that the money he will bring home can be used to buy piglets to start a business, he was dismayed when he discovered that his family did not have any savings and is buried in huge debt.

Binondo explained that he had been sending a monthly remittance of Php20,000 to his wife, Cristy, since 2016.

Meanwhile, a crying Cristy admitted that she often resorted to borrowing money from her peers as the Php20,000 monthly remittance she received from her husband was not enough to support their five children.

Cristy also admitted that what she did was a mistake on her part, but explained that she did not want to tell her husband about their financial problems to avoid giving him stress.

“Alam ko kasalanan ko ‘yun na mangutang na hindi ko ipinaalam sa kanya. Nangutang po ako dito dahil sa mga bata. Hindi ko binabayaran SSS niya sampung buwan, yung tuition fee sa aking anak,” Cristy said.

Raffy Tulfo, the host of the radio program, gave his comment on the situation stating that open communication was the problem between the two. While he recognized that the budget is indeed not enough for five children, the wife should have told the OFW about their debt.
