I only have 3 months from now and still I don't have savings when I go home. I have been here in KSA for 2 years and it seems that I haven't done much for my family and yet I don't have money when I will come home. It's seems so nice to have a good vacation if only I have many savings. Is it possible that I can earn money online for 3 months? Can you help me guys?

That is a sad thing which i'm sure many of our fellow Filipinos are experiencing. I know how difficult it is to be working in other countries considering the fact that we will be separated from our family, and that we will be working with other people having different culture. With a salary that if we will only be working hard in our country, we can also get it here. That is aside from the fact that those who were left home are really expecting that when you return, you have with you tons of money. Well, I'm not sure if you can do that much online for three months. You can try humanatic. Just go directly in their site and apply. I am earning a little from this site about $50 a month. I hope I was able to help you. Also I want to tell you if possible, find a job in our country. Then do the online thing. Have a great day!

thank you for your suggestion. I hope I can find a job there when I go home. It's very hard to find a good job in the philippines and now the cost living there is high and not good.

Welcome. I am willing to share anything that I know. A simple tip: Accuracy is the key. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any question. I am a permanent employee and I am doing my online activities on a part time. I am more into writing. Because with writing, an opportunity of earning passively is possible. Hopefully, you can be able to find solution to your problem.

Hi vycess. First I salute you for working abroad and dreaming high. I know how hard it is because I've been an OFW twice. I was able to save some when I first left but the second one did not turn well. I got sick and I've decided to go home not finishing my contract because I have to go surgery. I've spent all my savings paying a lending fee that our agency required us. It's around P240,000 and the fact that I wasn't able to finish at least half of my contract made me almost left with 0.00 balance on my bank account. I also spent tons of cash for going to hospital for check ups, medications and taking expensive natural supplements. It's very depressing. I did not lose hope. I've prayed hard everyday and keep reading inspirational stories online from people who also experienced the same trials. I started reselling items online with 0.00 investment. I've met an online seller who is legit and I asked her if I can copy the photos of her products and help her resell it. She agreed and I've started posting the products on my Facebook. My friends ordered, then strangers ordered, then the rest is history. You can also start searching for trusted money making websites here on myLot. Don't depend on just one since the earning will not be enough for you to pay bills in a short period of time. Join only those Free earning websites. I suggest you try joining Bubblews.com, myLot is good as well, try working for oDesk, Elance, iWriter and Experts Column. Bless you.

I hope you are doing well now. It's really hard getting sick abroad. Let's be thankful that we are still alive inspite all that happened. Thank you for the suggestion and hope for your continued success on your online job.

I know how you feel because your friends and family would certainly be expecting a lot from you since you have been out of the country. People always expect that you have lots of money because you are working abroad. I know someone who once worked in Hongkong as a domestic helper. The first time she came home she had to borrow from a bank that granted them loans. Others had to borrow from their employers. I have no idea about any online work that will fetch you some big money in three months. I hope others can give good suggestions.

Yes, I also have some friends that have done the same thing. Maybe I can't earn good money here online for 3 months but thanks anyway.

it because you only been there for three months and aside from that you also spend for your daily needs to live i mean the living cost in that country,so for me i would stay here in the country rather than to work in other country because i can earn money even i am here.

There are many possibilities how to make money on internet but most of them require more time than just 3 months. You can start selling stuff on internet, especially on e-bay. Try to buy some cheap stuff in Philippines and then sell it there. Now I am in similary position like you. I am staying in Thailand and I am trying to do some online business. I am looking for information everywhere. I am sure you will find soon very suitable solution for you.

one can earn money on line but it is not enough to go anywhere you can only earn for just an extra.. there are lots of scams here claiming that they can make you earn a lot so beware of it.. having an own website and selling is one of the ways to make you earn online.. anyways i bet your family is expecting you to have a money since you are in abroad,, but maybe they will understand you if you tell them that you don't have money.. you will just make it up to them..

well, don't worry too much when you don't have money. when i went to korea for studying, i went there by myself and when i went back i didn't have much money also. No one has a right to blame me about it..since i take care my life, my study. Earning money online is not easy and not much (my experience). In your case, you can start to earn money from now and try to save money whenever you can in case you need money later. Just take it easy and don't pus yourself into stress.

2 years isn't really enough time to save a lot and bring considerable help to your family. I know, because I used to work in Dubai as an Accountant but I have been there for only a year before their economy took a nose dive. Anyway, before you get there, you have to shell out some considerable amount of money as well. And while you're there, you have to send money to your family every month. You also have your own monthly expenses there. And after 2 years, usually you would just recover what you have spent before you get there, or just paid off the debts before you get there. Those who were able to invest into some property have been working abroad for at least 5 years. Now, I think the only way that you can save a lot in that span of time is when you don't have to send money to your family and your company provides for all your living allowances.
