At the same time, a lot of Overseas Filipino Workers are thinking of staying permanently in the country because of the improving economy. Some of those staying are thinking of becoming entrepreneurs.

In a related study conducted by professors Alvin Ang and Jeremaiah Opiniano of the University of Santo Tomas found that the amount of remittances, the length of time sending money and the percent of remittances to a household’s income are factors that may induce entrepreneurship and hometown investing.
