Fewer Filipinos Consider Themselves Poor 

Our country is a third world country not because it is poor. We are rich in natural resources. Unfortunately, there is a cancer in the government. It has been ran by corrupt public officials who also have bosses who are oligarchs, So the poor became poorer and the few who were rich became richer. For a long time, our farmers only worked hard to produce rice but couldn’t afford to eat them. They eat corn as they find it affordable compared to rice, worse is they only consume root crops to live by.

This is an all time low record. The past administrations had high percentages which means that the first 100 days of President Duterte has made an impact to the poorest citizens of the country.
