The best part of this is that it is open to even students who are looking to start their career.

      I appreciate all the positive comments to the Philippines. It is time to pay back and help our country little by little. If all Fil-American invest a portion of 10% of what they earned abroad, we can help the government create 10 to 25% of the job they cannot create. Some foreigners invest in the country and still there are some more demand jobs that we can create as a small business owner. Don't wait for our government to give us tax incentive, as long as we make profit and help our fellow poor people inproved their life style, I am happy and thanks the lord for giving me this opportunity. I learned a lot of things in the United States and I want to share this to our fellow Filipino who has no chance to go to the US. I will sacrifice to make some money and invest this to our country. If 1 million immigrant and Fil-American joint forces to make this happen, the Philippines will be on the top list in Southeast Asia the best country to retire. God Bless President Aquino and the Pilipino people.

      I love and want to invest in the Philippines to help our fellow poor but talented young generation graduates to learn to operate a small business venture. I will also encourage our 1 million Filipino-American and american friends to join me if my investment start to grow in the next 2 years or so.This is the only way I can help my mother country and family in the Philippines. They deserved to have a happy and rich life because of their hospitality, generosity and taking care of their children despite of their hardship. God Bless

      Things are definitely looking up for the Philippines as more and more companies outsource their work there. It is still difficult to make anywhere near what you would expect in the West, but the cost of living is so much lower that even $5/hr is a great salary for most people.

      I love the Philippines, I would love to work there but the available wages are still far too low to attract someone from the west even if you lived there....

      I hope to open a company or two there in the near future, the people are hard working, good english speakers, and keen to make an impact..
