Investing On Time Deposit

money matters, money talks

Last year I have made little progress with my personal financial goals. I divided the little man’s savings and put the other half in a time deposit. My money many not have earned as much after 3 months of time deposit but it was way better that the few cents the money in the bank account earns from monthly interest {and there’s even tax to worry about!}.

I have renewed my time deposit for another 3 months this year and plans to add more to the principal amount once I save up a substantial amount. I invested my money in a local cooperative here in our city, although it was filed in Bataan where my sister works. Apart from the time deposit that earns 4.5% interest/year, I also now have a savings account with the cooperative. The best part of being a member is that I can apply for a loan in case I need money. I can avail of a loan equivalent to the amount of my time deposit, something I can use in times of emergencies.

money talks, money matters

I actually opened an account with them for the little man in 2010, but was not able to deposit regularly, I hope I’d be able to add up a few more to my savings this year if my wallet permits.

While I was working, I was not able to keep a personal savings account since I spend most of my earnings for my family’s needs, but I am glad that I can do it now even when I only get to earn through my various works online. I may not save enough to buy my little man his own house in the future but I am hoping I save a considerable amount which he can use for his education or for his other needs in the future.

  1. congrats Vix! That’s true investing in time deposit is way better than the regular savings account. I am also a member of our cooperative. My capital share is increasing overtime and another good thing of being a member is the privilege of applying for loans in times of emergencies. Our cooperative recently offered time deposits and I am planning to invest few months from now.

    1. it is good that there are a lot of cooperatives everywhere for people who are interested to join, we are not only investing our hard-earned money but are also able to help those who are in need in the process. long live the local cooperatives! ūüôā
