Usage Note Icon Usage Notes:
"Kuwarta" is not as often used nowadays. We generally use "pera" to mean "money". You can still hear "kuwarta" though when it is used in the abstract. For example, if we'd say, "Maraming kwarta si Mary", we'd be inclined to understand that to mean that Mary is rich. If it's "Maraming pera si Mary", it can also mean that she's rich, but it's more like she has lots of money to spend at the moment.
