President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday promised to help the repatriated overseas Filipino workers from Saudi Arabia and give assistance to those who are still stranded.
Duterte said the OFWs were allowed to loan so that they can start a small business in the Philippines.
"Makakahiram ka ng pera at makapag-start ka ng negosyo mo… Take advante of it. It is for everybody," Duterte told the OFWs.
Duterte also offered for help for those people who need assistance.
"If it spells hunger don't hesitate to call me," he said.
Duterte asked the OFWs to give him more time to enhance the economy of the country for them to have a best opportunity just to settle here.
"Maghintay-hintay lang kayo. Bigyan mo lang ako ng konting pahanon, ayusin ko ang ekonomiya at may opportunity for you to work here," Duterte said.
Duterte said he will help the many stranded OFWs in Saudi Arabia.
"We have the money, contingency, resources to do it," he said.
