OWWA loan is not a benefit, it is actually a privilege limited to qualified active members of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration. Although there are certain standards which must be met by OFWs, every Filipino working overseas or in a vacation can absolutely avail and utilize OWWA credit program. In fact, I have seen a relevant information wherein not only those who are working abroad can qualify to apply but also those who are on a vacation here in the Philippines.
