The high cost of school textbooks has created a state of anger among Moroccan families, especially the vulnerable and middle classes, who struggle greatly to create some kind of balance in managing their daily livelihood.
According to what Al-Jarida 24 reviewed, a number of banks presented new offers to customers, during the school entry occasion, in order to encourage them to make small loans.
During this period, a number of banks reduced interest rates, with the aim of attracting the largest number of vulnerable and middle classes, who hope to provide all the educational requirements for their children, as well as registration and insurance expenses.
Immediately after the offers were presented, banks and microloans witnessed a remarkable demand from Moroccan families.
On the other hand, the parliamentary opposition is still calling on the Minister of National Education, Primary Education and Sports, Chakib Benmoussa, to reveal various measures to reduce the high cost of books and school supplies, in light of the deterioration in the purchasing power of most families.
In its written question addressed to Chakib Benmoussa, the Progress and Socialism Team in the House of Representatives called for an urgent meeting to be held to clarify the restrictions and developments in school entry for 2023/2024.
