"How the Pandemic consumed our savings"

Last year the news broke about a Virus spreading in our country and soon our President declared a total lockdown. As far as I remember, in the second week of March in our area, our Mayor implemented a lockdown and hopefully the Fiesta will be in full swing in our area where we have taken a stall for our food and shakes. We did nothing but stop even though we had not fully recovered everything we spent for the stall and equipment there because we had to follow the protocol of the Municipality. And we also have a stall in the National High School Canteen of meals, shakes, siomai etc. Because since we came home from abroad, we have been here to focus on our small business that really helped us with our daily needs. Because we didn't want to go out of the country to be with our children.

Normally the class will end in the 3rd or 4th week of March and if it wasn't from that Virus we would still be able to sell, but everything has become strict and we also need to be careful so we went home with not much savings. because we also pay our debts. Yes, we are both abroad, but also because of the SCHEME trend, those who are trending here in Mindanao about that investment have also exhausted our savings from abroad, but 2 months before going home, we sent money so that if we go home, it will be big, the money we would have taken. My husband lost his 200,000 pesos in that investment scheme and I lost 80,000 on my savings too. That's why our last month salary abroad is the only money we have going home. That's why we sell foods,merienda at the school because that school is also one and only Big Campus in our place which have almost 3,000 students. "Malakas na sana ang benta kung wala lang mga binabayaran".

At the moment our Mayor declared that there's no class everyone is so sad because many of us vendors only depend on the students who buy our foods. We were very annoyed because we were getting up again and the sales at the school were already big and then it stopped. It was painful but we had to accept and we had to make up for the money we had left until everything was back to normal. And we're really thinking that maybe June will be busy and back to normal thing so we can earn income again so we'll just have to put up with it for two months, "kaya to". That's the only words I could say that time. I need to control the money and tipid din coz we don't have plenty of it.

Covid 19 Virus is already spreading, and everything has become more severe all because of the deadly virus. So the Philippines is working together on food and the government is giving aid to everyone but it has also not been enough because a month has passed and it is May at that time that there is still no news if the class will return or not but it is still clear on crystal clear water that really won't. Increasing the number of Covid Patient cases each day makes me feel so hopeless . We already touched our capital money and afraid that we run out of money.

Until he declared that there would be no school/class in June and it was considered modular. It's too much pain in my chest to think that we don't have anything left during those times, there's something left but it's more reserved for our kids because that time many in our place had fever so I am more become so worried, so I bought everything they need just to boost their immune system and we too. And until the month really came when our savings were exhausted and there were still no classes so my husband was forced to work in lending company and he was hired but before that we owed money because almost how many months without income so there is no choice but to borrow.

See how this Pandemic really affect us.The Pandemic had a severe effect on our family and I know others as well, but because our country is poor because of the amount of corruption that instead of helping, they have enriched themselves even more so we are the ones who suffer so much. Debt is what Pandemic has given us in our lives so even now we still have debts to pay. Pandemic drained our savings. Lucky are those who are rich and born rich they don't need to starved and earn money buy it's own just to sustain the daily food they eat. But lucky are those rich person who helped people who are in needs and able to share the blessings they get from above. Salute to those person who choose to help others than watching people die in hunger.

Ouch. That's the reason why it is a scheme, if it's too good to be true then it is a scam. Don't worry you can earn more in the future. :)
