To date, there are 12 million Filipinos residing and working abroad. Part of this number is roughly 2.4 million contracted OFWs who are deployed all over the world. The average On the average, OFWs get to remit less than Php10,000.00 per month for their families. With the current price of commodities today, this amount will be hardly enough to cover the expenses of their family thus also erasing the possibility as well of them saving up for their future needs. The P10,000 will just be allocated for basic needs such as food and monthly bills. As a result, OFWs are faced with the challenge of ensuring that the money they send is spent properly that is to cover the basic needs and monthly bills of their family.
This is where Puregold’s PurePadala comes in to help the OFWs. PurePadala is an innovative and groundbreaking new remittance service specifically designed and conceptualized for OFWs and Filipinos residing abroad, and their families here in the Philippines.
PurePadala ensures that the money OFWs and immigrants send to their families will be used for the right purposes. Puregold’s PurePadala will help and assure OFWs that all their sacrifices are worth it, one sure transaction at a time.
With PurePadala, the money that every OFW remits goes directly to the basic and most important necessities of their families: food, tuition and utilities, loan payments, and even as start-up capital for a sari-sari store business among many others. OFWs now have a viable option to send money through Puregold’s PurePadala as powered by Globe GCash. OFWs get to decide the allocation of the money they will send to their families. Families will receive a text message containing the breakdown of the money they will get and redeem in Puregold what is allocated for them.
For PurePadala, Gary Valenciano has recorded a brand new song titled “Makakarating” which he arranged himself. With a music video directed by Jofre Nachora, “Makakarating” is written by Betsy Baking with music by Tito Cayamanda. “I feel so happy and blessed now that I am part of Puregold’s growing family,” says Gary. “I take pride to represent PurePadala as it honors the hard work and sacrifices of every Filipino working abroad with the hope of providing their families a better life.”
Puregold Price Club Inc. President Vincent Co on the other hand, is equally happy and ecstatic now that PurePadala is finally a reality and that Gary agreed to endorse it. “The long wait is finally over and I am very happy now that PurePadala is here to serve our hard-working OFWs and their families. I can only imagine the hardships that every OFW is going through every day as they work away from their families and loved ones in their desire to give them a bright future. We at Puregold sincerely hope that PurePadala delivers each family’s needs conveniently. We are very happy to welcome Gary as our newest Kapamilya. Gary has inspired countless Filipinos in the span of his amazing career and our partnership with him is truly an honor.”
