In many cases in rural communities a lot of children stop schooling due to their family’s income, nothing to eat and having no “baon” for school, and most of them are helping their parents in looking for the family’s food, household chores and doing other works contributing to family’s income. The drop-out rate of school children is also ridiculously high rate. Right now, only about 45 out of every 100 Filipinos have finished high school. Corruption in the education bureaucracy and a lack of resources make delivering a high-quality education to all Filipinos a challenge. Microfinance is one way to help. With the assistance of microcredit loans, women can pay for the education of their children – to purchase uniforms, textbooks, lunches, and rides to school.
