Teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime!

September 01, 2022

Before joining Quizrr, I worked in a financial company. I was committed to providing every customer with the best financial services, establishing a more secure and reliable financial risk control model, and creating a more convenient loan approval system. I had to work on providing customers with the loans they needed while reducing risks for the company. I firmly believed that this could help all customers.

But one day, I met a customer whose loan was overdue. He told me that he could have repaid all the loans, but the company dismissed his wife because she could not continue work due to pregnancy. He had even worked overtime. But his company did not pay him his regular pay as well as his overtime pay. He was overwhelmed by the problem. 

This deeply shocked me. If I approved more loans and lowered interest rates for customers like him, it would only ease their financial burden temporarily. The more such workers are deprived of their fundamental rights, the harder it becomes for them to repay their loans. Eventually, their lives collapse like dominoes. Not being able to help them left me feeling helpless, as I was responsible for my company and people had to repay their loans on time. 

The proverb, “If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime,sparked an idea in my mind. I helped the man find a lawyer to defend his rights. In the end, he and his wife got the compensation they deserved and repaid all the loans.  

Later, I joined Quizrr. This company is dedicated to teaching people to fish than fishing for them. Our learning programs educate countless workers across the global supply chain on their human and labor rights and responsibilities. This type of education not only improves their quality of life but also enhances their productivity at their workplace. Thus, society generates more liquidity and in turn, results in the betterment of the world economy. This, in my view, is the true virtuous circle!  

As the IT Manager, I ensure workers have a smooth training experience and periodically assess their progress. Our team is committed to developing user-friendly, regional, language and industry-specific training tools for global supply chain workers. 

If life were to be a line made up of numerous consecutive dots, I believe each of Quizrr’s training modules is the crucial dots that connect to form a better line and harmonious life!
