Ronie Villar

My BPO/HMO story began in the year 2015 while I was a public servant as Barangay Kagawad of Maipalig. I was invited to represent our Barangay in Ilocos Norte to attend the Family Day held in Laoag City as a member of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program known as 4P’s.

In the lobby, someone approached me and asked me if I wanted to apply for a job as a Call Center Agent. I didn’t know the nature of that job. I was a Farmer for almost 15 years. Out of curiosity, I asked if I am qualified for the job. She said that there is no age limit. They gave a form to fill out and after that, the interview began. I was shocked because the interviewer was asking questions in English, and I had to answer in English. I did my best answering the questions even if it was difficult for me. Luckily, I passed the initial interview. They advise me to come back the next day for another interview. I still made it up to five interviews that took a week. I was so happy because it did not stop me from grabbing the opportunity to get a nice job. Finally, my training started. I never thought that it was going to be difficult and challenging for me.
I was the oldest; the rest of my batch was 18 years of age. It felt like I was a Grade 1 student trying to cope up with school subjects in class, which were really hard. My confidence level was very low because the people around me are degree-holders and graduates of bachelor courses. As for myself, I have accomplished the secondary level.

In 2000, I enrolled in college for a Bachelor of Science and Computer Programming. However, I only completed one semester because my wife got pregnant with my third child. I looked for a job and luckily the Coca-Cola Paranaque Sales Office hired me as an agency checker. At the age of 35, I lost my job because of my age. From there, I went back to my province to do farming.

It suddenly hit me, I reflected on my past experience. Everything I have been through defines how hard life can be. At the time, I realized how lucky and blessed I am to be given this opportunity. It doesn’t matter where I came from, what matters most is my purpose and dedication to providing for my family. Nothing can hinder me from striving and reach my goals.

Why am I sharing this?
Foundever gives me the future in life, a future that I can never repay my entire life with. In Foundever, I get to learn more. I get to interact with people who never stop helping me throughout the way. I feel appreciated and valued. I get to continuously provide for my family because of the benefits I get with Foundever. Lastly, I can fulfill my dreams for my children.
I’m proud to say that my eldest is now doing her practice teaching on her AB in English course. My second and third child are now in senior high. They are very responsible, they are scholars. They are also doing a part-time job as Gasoline boy while studying and they aim to study here in Baguio to take TESDA course. They inspire me to work hard, they support me in everything that I do.

My name is Ronie G. Villar, 50 years of age and I am looking forward.
