‘Like a thief in your own territory’
On a good day, Jun* makes P500 driving a tricycle. Of that, P200 goes to fuel. Coming home to his family with P300 after an entire day plying the streets of Masinloc, Zambales, he feels less than himself.
It wasn’t always like this. He didn’t use to be so poor. He and his family have had good times. But misfortune came 7 years ago and now it has come to this.
