Silca stands for Silang, Cavite.
Silang is our home. It is where both sides of Enrile and Evelyn’s respective families are from, with both sides playing critical roles in the development and progression of the town.
Enrile’s father was Mayor of Silang for 16 years, starting in 1956, and Evelyn’s father was the Owner & Manager of the town’s only rural banks. Evelyn’s father not only planted coffee himself for his own leisure, but was also the financier behind many coffee farms, by issuing farmers agricultural loans to plant coffee, as the owner of the Rural Bank of Silang, Silangan Savings and Loan Bank and Silangan Finance.
Silang is about 40 kilometers outside Metro Manila, and a little over a one hour drive.
