    Ano po ba ang paluwagan? If it is what I think it is, sa Bisaya we call it "dawat-dawat" and in english its sinking fund (the regular folks or the ordinary man on the street's version of the "sinking fund" concept in big business because money is pooled).

    EDITED TO ADD when I back read and saw the original post from akosilester:

    yung money-pooling ng isang grupo, tapos may susuweldo weekly...

    I think it's "sinking fund".

    There is no official English translation for paluwagan, but there are coined terms such as "savings group," "group mutual fund," "savings and loans association," and "solidarity bank."
