Going Beyond the Expectations

Pleased to have met the top executives of Homecredit Mutual Building and Loan Association (left to right): Mr. Kevin R. Lynch (President/CEO), Ms. Mylene H. Paris (Marketing Head), Ms. Virgie Ventura (Asst. Manager Client Services Dept.) and Mr. Michael C. Kaiser (Head Client Services Dept.)

My daughter and I had the pleasure of meeting the top executives of Homecredit Mutual Building And Loan Association. I’ve been a member of this association since 2010 and I’m honored to have a trusted partner for roughly 10 years. They’re one of the associations I’ve known that goes beyond their service.

Year 2016 when I gave birth to my youngest child thru c-section at the Las Piñas Doctors Hospital. I was unconscious all throughout as I passed out when I got right at the doorstep of the hospital. Sadly, due to severe pre-eclampsia, my delivery led to a heart and lung complication (pulmonary congestion) so I was sent to the ICU (Internal Care Unit) after staying at the emergency room. When I woke up, there were tubes in my body and had to take lots of medicine thru IV infusion. The delivery was successful but I had to undergo lots of tests. Many times, three regular doctors would always tell me the same thing over and over again when they visited me, that only a small number of women can outlive this case, stating only 2 out of 10 can survive. My OB-GYN told me that I was so lucky for having a second life that she even advised me to offer a thanksgiving mass once I get out of the hospital.

I’d wanted to be released from the hospital since day one because I know the longer I stay, the higher our bills would get.

While my baby daughter was declared healthy after staying for 2 days at the nursery section, I, in my weakest state, stayed in the ICU for 7 days to have my heart and lungs monitored. After being released from the ICU, I stayed in a regular room for 3 more days. Our hospital bills kept on increasing each day and it’s something that we didn’t expect. Thankfully, we had friends and loved ones who helped us go through that situation.

Homecredit Mutual Building And Loan Association provided financial assistance during that time, aside from the help we received from our relatives, friends and our immediate families. Without them, we couldn’t survive financially. Ms. Virgie Ventura, Homecredit Assistant Marketing Manager, even visited me in the hospital that time to check my condition. She met my family twice and I can vividly remember what she said, “You are blessed, you have a very beautiful family”.

I will always be thankful to those who have helped my family during that time, most especially those who have always prayed for my fast recovery. I still have the encouraging notes, letters and heartfelt text messages with me. When I look back, I still can’t believe I’ve surpassed that challenge in my life. It may have brought us to a financial and health difficulty but it gave us another source of inspiration to live. That day has changed my entire life as our littlest angel came to our lives. It all happened with a purpose and that purpose made our family much happier and made us more united (me and husband most especially).

It brought me to a realization that you will always be tested many times, but if you have trusted friends and reliable partners in life, things will be a lot easier to handle. They will go beyond what you expect them to do, it’s all because they care about you.

Ms. Virgie Ventura (Asst. Manager Client Services Dept.), my daughter, Raulyn and I
