Kiddie depositors of CARD Bank, Inc. and children of top-performing clients of CARD, Inc. actively participated in the Koa Kafe storytelling activity featuring the storybook “Ang Lapis Ni Anya.”

CARD Publishing House held Koa Kafe, a pop-up event named after the publishing company’s official owl mascot, in CARD Bank, Inc. La Trinidad Branch on October 20, 2022.

The event’s main objective is to bring the institution’s publications closer to CARD’s clients and their families through various activities. The event is part of “Araw ng Pagbangon,” a program of CARD Mutually Reinforcing Institutions (CARD MRI). During the event, attendees were given free coffee, juice, and indomie noodles from Mga Likha ni Inay, a marketing arm of CARD MRI.

All throughout the day, CARD Publishing’s books and magazines were put on display for the attendees to enjoy and read. These include publications like Sulong, the official newspaper of CARD MRI; History of San Pablo: Reviewed, Rewritten, and Retold, a local history book; CARDventures, a travelogue; and “Ang Magic Alkansya ni Carding,” a storybook on basic financial literacy.

Meanwhile, the storytelling activity was participated by 17 children featuring “Ang Lapis ni Anya”, a storybook that shares the importance of managing time wisely. Koa merchandise such as notebooks, stuffed toys, and other school supplies was also given to the participants.
