Lolita Mondia has three children and had to find ways to cover her families’ daily expenses after her husband died.
She applied for a loan from Taytay sa Kauswagan Inc. (TSKI) and used the money for a charcoal business which her son Joeffry helped her with.
In April, Lolita was hospitalised due to high blood pressure and her situation quickly deteriorated because she got pneumonia. Lolita stayed in the hospital for 37 days. Ten days of which were spent in the intensive care unit.
Joeffry works as a part-time dance instructor and his sister Joralyn, is a dormitory caretaker in Manila, their oldest brother Joeman, a construction worker already had his own family and their combined earnings were not enough to cover the hospital expenses for their mother. To pay the bills and pay for the medication, Joeffry borrowed money from his friends and relatives.
On Lolita’s 57th birthday, in June, Joeffry prepared a simple celebration for his mother. Lolita was so happy to be with everyone to celebrate her birthday but very sadly Lolita suffered a stroke on the same day and died.
The family were distraught, but even in this time of sadness they needed to cover the funeral costs and the debts from their mothers hospital stay.
TSKI staff informed the family that Lolita had life cover under her Gold Plan 2 insurance policy and Joeffry was the named beneficiary. Joeffry gathered the required documents and within four days of submitting the completed claim documents, the claim was approved and he was paid Php100, 000 ($1865 USD).
The money helped to pay their debts and fix their house. Some money was used for Joeffry to start a small ice cream business which he now runs alongside the charcoal business. Joeffry feels the money was like an inheritance from his mother helping him secure his future without her.
Gold Plan 2 is a product offered to renewing clients of TSKI which covers the principal member and five
family members with life and accidental death and dismemberment insurance.
