Ancis Chincilla was the “only thorn among the roses” in his center. Even though he was the only male member of Center 28023 – Barangay Aggugaddan, Peñablanca, Cagayan, this did not hinder him from actively participating in their center.

He was encouraged by their Center Chief to join because the fast loan processing and insurance coverage. He finally joined TSPI last July 2019 for the insurance coverage and also to augment his income as a tricycle driver direct seller of health products. He also wanted to support his wife, Modelyne Chincilla, who had been an OFW for more than nine years. The couple wanted to provide the best education for their 3 children.

Tatay Ancis was a role model in their community. He took care of his children and was able to build a happy home, even in the absence of Nanay Modelyne. He was a loving father to his children and a loyal husband to his wife.

Tatay Ancis was also loved by the community and his co-center members. He was a responsible family-man, fun to be with, approachable the person to run to in times of need. There were no dull moments with Tatay Ancis.

Unfortunately, Tatay Ancis was infected with the Covid virus. In just a couple days, he eventually succumbs to Covid-19 last April 25, 2021. With a heavy heart, Nanay Modelyne left Honking in June 2021 and decided to stay here in the country and take care of their children.  

Nanay Modelyne was not aware of the insurance coverage of Tatay Ancis with TSPI MBAI. She never expected receiving One Hundred Thirty-Five Thousand Pesos (P135,000) from TSPI MBAI. The money which Nanay Modelyne received helped her start a new life in the country.

She used the money as initial working capital for their hog raising and small talipapa (a mini wet market that sells fish, meat and vegetables) business. The income has allowed her to support her family. Nanay Modelyne also saved a portion of the claims coverage for her children’s education.

“Tuwing naaalala ko pa din ang aking asawa, hindi ko mapigilan ang hindi umiyak. Napakasakit pa din tanggapin dahil hindi ko alam kung paano ko kakayaning buhayin ang aming mga anak na wala na siya. 

Ngunit salamat dahil kahit sa ganitong sitwasyon at pangyayaring hindi naming inaasahan na natulungan kami ng TSPI MBAI.

Naunawaan ko ng husto ang kahalagahan ng pagpapaseguro sa buhay.”  – Nanay Modelyne. 

Having appreciated and understood the importance of having an insurance coverage, she continued her membership with TSPI MBAI. She also encouraged some of her friend and relatives to join TSPI.
