OFW from Kuwait Wins Brand New SUV Worth 1 Million Pesos

Edna has been working for the same employer in Kuwait for over 16 years and when asked what she’s going to do with the prize, she says that her sponsor’s sibling will buy it from her, and she will use the money to invest in a house and car in the Philippines.

“I was surprised when I found out I won the raffle and when I told my sponsor about, they thought I was going to go home to the Philippines for good. I’ve decided to sell the SUV so I could use the money to invest in a house and get another car in the Philippines.” Edna says.

She heard about Korooti through a friend because of the available discounts and raffle draws one can get for being a member.

Here’s the video during the raffle draw:

What is Korooti?

In case you’re wondering what Korooti is, it is a VIP discount card designed for OFWs who want to save money from various shops, restaurants, and hotels abroad and also in the Philippines. Aside from the discounts, you can also earn extra income (if you refer other people), win flight tickets every month or even win yearly grand raffle prizes. Last year, a Filipina from Saudi Arabia won a brand new car.

There will be more exciting events and more opportunities like this if you become part of the Korooti family.
