Cebuana Lhuillier Launches Micro Savings Product

J.

Cebuana Lhuillier seeks financial inclusion through Micro Savings. 


Having worked in a financial institution for a few years, I know for a fact that it is not exactly easy to open a bank account for the regular Juan. Not only will you be asked for a minimum of two valid IDs, often times a minimum of P2,000 (for passbook account) is also asked for initial deposit and just about the same maintaining balance, for the most part. This truth makes it almost impossible for the masses to afford opening a savings account. Who would want to open an supposed savings account of which balance be eaten up by "below maintaining balance" charges?


And we know how it is when a person does not have a savings account, hand-to-mouth existence is just about the default. Truth be told, if a working person is able to save even just a minimum amount on a constant basis, it will be easier to be more prudent with one's resources, paving the way towards becoming wiser stewards of money.

The Reason Why Comfortable Helmets Are Safer

J.
In most countries, you are required to wear a motorcycle helmet when you are taking a ride on a motorcycle. Wearing a helmet while riding a motorcycle increases your chance of survival in case there is an accident. Wearing a helmet can also greatly reduce the risk of fatal head injury that could lead to permanent injury to the brain or life threatening.

Accident statistics have shown that helmets do save lives. A large percent of motorists involved in fatal motorcycle accidents where those found not wearing helmets. Seasoned motorists know the importance of wearing a helmet whenever they are on their rides. It should be the responsibility of every motorist to wear a helmet whether it is mandatory or not in their country to protect their own lives. The helmets should meet the safety standards required by the Department of Transportation.



When a motorcyclist is involved in an accident, there is nothing to shield or protect his or her head from the impact of the fall or crash. Even a minor knock or blow on the head could cause concussion or a traumatic brain injury, resulting in permanent head injuries or even death. Wearing a helmet also helps to protect injuries to the eyes, teeth, and face. Helmets can protect you from flying particles such as dust particles, gravels, bugs, and other objects you could come in contact with while on your rides.
