Why not send the Manila’s elite and the middle classes to the provinces so that they can invest in industries or establish lending facilities that will ensure job creation or business start ups? Sending the urban poor to the provinces is easier said than done. It will only work if the urban poor have tenure to lands in their provinces. Their tenure can make them sufficient if they have enough capital to start their own businesses. But they need capital and that could be provided by micro credit.
