CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY,--A young private employee of the Philippine Spring Water Resources, Inc. (PSWRI) recently bagged the P250,000 cash prize from Pag-IBIG Fund's Dagdag Ipon Raffle Promo Year 3.
Ma. Victoria Lagumbay, 29, of Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon, said she has never been fortunate in raffle promos thus, when she heard her colleagues telling her she won one of the major prizes of Pag-IBIG Fund's raffle promo, she did not believe them at first.
"It was on January 25, 2019 when the raffle was held and it was the same day my mother celebrated her birthday. I was on field that day when my colleagues, who were viewing the draw live on Facebook, called me up to say I won P250,000," Lagumbay narrated.
Though hesitant, Lagumbay went to Pag-IBIG Fund Cagayan de Oro Central Members Services Office to verify her winning and with the immediate response from the said branch, the young winner was able to get her check in just a few days.
"The Fund was very accommodating and quick in processing my prize that is why for a busy person like me who travels places for work, I really find them helpful."
Lagumbay has been a member of Pag-IBIG Fund since 2011 and when her company informed her that they will upgrade her savings to P800 per month to proportionate her monthly income, she complied and responded to Pag-IBIG Fund's email invitation for the Dagdag Ipoon Raffle Promo.
Caught by surprise, Lagumbay said she still couldn't believe her luck but will definitely allot some for Pag-IBIG fund's Modified Pag-IBIG II (MP2) program-- solely a savings scheme, designed to provide Pag-IBIG I members with another savings option that would grant them with a yield higher than those given under the Pag-IBIG I membership program.
Lagumbay is the lucky winner of the raffle promo's second quarter draw. Members with at least P600 savings per month and have joined the raffle promo period from July 1, 2018 to March 31, 2019 will have the chance to win P1 million during the grand draw on May 1, 2019.
