Admittedly I am not into investment and savings how could I even save when I am raising my 2 kids on my own. Then I discovered that there is such a thing as  a Cebuana Lhuillier Micro Savings account. So here are 3 reasons why It’s worth looking into.

1. The required minimum amount to open an account is only 50. Yes the initial deposit is 50 pesos more affordable than a tall Starbucks drink or a Milktea drink.
