Marlene Hontong is a food vendor in Davao City. To improve her business, she requested a loan from Taytay sa Kauswagan Inc. (TSKI). The business loan is bundled with insurance.
One of her dependents was her sister, Marivic Mandaya, who worked in a food and beverage company. Marivic travels one hour every day just to go to work. In November 2019, like any regular day, Marivic decided to hitch a ride with their company truck which was heading to the same direction as their home. While on the road, the driver thought that Marivic was just sleeping but later noticed that she was no longer breathing. Marivic was rushed to the nearby hospital but, unfortunately, was declared dead on arrival. It was later found out that Marivic had suffered a heart attack.
This has been a sorrowful and shocking situation for Marivic’s family.
The TSKI staff informed Marlene that she was entitled to a claim since she insured Marivic under her policy. Marlene processed the necessary documents with ease and received the insurance benefit amount of Php 10, 0000 a few days after.
Marlene is grateful for the amount received and said that it helped them in some ways especially in the paying for the funeral expenses.
“Insurance, somehow, made that tough situation a little lighter for us.” Marlene said.
She was happy to endorse the services of TSKI and the insurance to her friends since she experienced it first-hand.
