My name is Mary Jane Duque and my husband's name is Gilberto Duque and his job is driving a tri-bike with a passenger carriage. I am a housewife with 7 children aging from 15,10,9,7,6,4 and 1 1/2 years old. One of my children is living with my parents due to poverty and inability to provide for all of them. I allow my child to go to them so I can send my second child to go to school and sometimes he try to help with what he can to earn some money.
My husband earns P 300.00 a day ($6) . I have a hard time budgeting it with our expenses like food and my childrens lunch money. Sometimes it gets harder when the tricycle breaks down. He pays P 150.00/day ($3) to get the tricycle moving and so he can use it to earn a living.
But since the Feeding Program established, it helped us tremendously because for all my children, they can eat a meal that is nutritious. After they eat the meal they don't have to eat again in the evening. I am very thankful to the sponsors of the Feeding Program. it's a big thing for me to have the Feeding Program in our place and I am thankful that I became a part of it and most of all my children.
