At the school level, there is training for the Head Teachers in financial management and school improvement loans are provided to provide better facilities and offer better quality education to the teachers and students of these low-cost private schools.  School fee loans are provided to 5,000 parents to help them ensure their children access and stay in school. Moreover, learners at 24 schools are given financial education, school saving clubs are set up and the learners open their first saving accounts.

The program provides loans to parents for school fees, loans to school proprietors for school improvement, and financial literacy and skills training for students.Cost of education, poor proximity of schools and lack of applicability to real employability
