Here Are The Poorest Countries in the World (With Pictures)

Are you interested in learning about the world's poorest country? The countries on this list will still be among the most impoverished in 2020. Despite the fact that decent development is improving in many countries around the world and in everyday life, significant poverty persists in many. It is possible to measure the world's poorest countries in various ways. In numerous ways, poverty occurs and is quantified by governments, international organizations, decision-makers, and practitioners. Increasingly, poverty is viewed as having multiple facets, including social, cultural, and economic repercussions on society as a whole.

Poverty, according to the World Bank, is measured as a percentage of GDP. Severe poverty, according to the bank, is defined as having a daily income of less than US$1.90. (PPP) and a daily income of less than $3.10 for the poorest people. There were 1.4 billion people predicted to live on less than US$ 1.25 per day in 2008 and 2.7 billion people living on less than US$ 2 per day.

As a result of this skill-building strategy, it is important to grasp vulnerable people's perspectives through recognizing and evaluating poverty. You'll learn more about how PDB hires them in this article. This shows the country's purchasing power per capita, also known as the PPP. PPP stands for purchasing power parity, and GDP is used to figure out how much money each person has. As a result, the country's economics can be better understood. The payment is made in a foreign currency in this instance. As a result, the dollar value of this imaginary currency is the same as the actual one.


Togo is home to a variety of ills, but AIDS has claimed the lives of countless youngsters. Only 63.7% of the population can read and write, which could explain the low literacy rate. In countries where less than 60% of the population has access to clean and safe drinking water, aquatic infections are common. Inadequate infrastructure is another factor contributing to the economy's plight. Poverty is defined as living on less than $1,90 a day for an individual living outside of a city. According to purchasing power parity and per-capita income, the year 1549 is the following:


Around 45% of the world's population is considered to be impoverished. An ever-increasing population and poor health care are just some of the elements that contribute to poverty in Comoros. In search of a better life, almost 150 000 Komoro have fled their motherland for countries like France. According to population estimates, the overall population of Comoros is around 800,000 people. Economic outcomes have improved steadily as a result of recent developments. According to purchasing power parity and per-capita income, the year 1528 was:


Around 70% of Madagascar's population lives in poverty, making it one of the world's most poor tropical animal and vanilla-producing countries. Madagascar's poor economic performance can be traced back to political unrest and corruption. The crime rate is still very high. Purchasing power parity and per capita values for 1504 are as follows:


Agriculture is the most significant industry, which may come as a surprise to some people. Africa is home to all of the world's poorest countries, yet this concentration is due to a variety of circumstances. Many African countries have experienced corruption and civil war as a result of colonialism, and this has slowed their growth. Furthermore, the United States has the highest rate of children born to adults in the world due to a lack of contraception. Larger families are also anticipated to be stronger and better able to help one another in times of need. They would still have to live in some of the world's most impoverished countries, which would deny them the chance to go to school.

A developing economy and decreasing inequality are hallmarks of African nations. When contrasted to Sweden, which has a PPP per capita of 47,862, the United States comes in the 16th place (my own country). The data shows that the PPPs per capita in Sweden are higher than in all of the world's worst-performing countries combined. The Eritrean economy has finally reached the country and its people after years of harsh drought. Even other countries have done nothing to help the afflicted country.

President Isaiah Afeverki rules Eritrea as a dictatorship. 1321 in terms of purchasing power parity and per capita:

8. Guinea

Although the Republic of Guinea has one of the world's largest mineral deposits and is the eighth poorest country, despite its wealth in natural resources. This is not to be confused with the neighboring countries of Papua New Guinea and Guinea Bissau. Gold, silver, uranium, and diamonds are some of Guinea's most abundantly found minerals. Funded large firms have no intention of giving back to the local community in any meaningful way. Corrupt officials have orchestrated the establishment of the vast majority of enterprises in the area. As a result, the industry will be forced to close and the profits will be allocated by unscrupulous officials because Guinea lacks the financial wherewithal to harvest natural resources. To put it another way, the median household income in the United States is $1271.


Former Portuguese colony's bloody civil war has left a bleak legacy. The conflict claimed the lives of an estimated one million individuals. Despite being devastated by catastrophic natural disasters, such as storms and floods, which exacerbated the country's poverty, Mozambique appeared to have a much brighter future until lately. 1228 is the purchasing power parity and per-capita income when comparing countries.


Tobacco is Malawi's main export, and cultivation is responsible for about all of the country's jobs. People in Malawi have died from starvation on multiple occasions because the country is developing and has few resources. Researchers estimate that, despite recent economic growth, around a quarter of the population is still living in abject poverty. Many people are unable to meet their fundamental needs as the population grows faster than the economy. Purchasing power parity and per-capita income equal 1139.


Were you aware of the Niger Republic's vast uranium reserves? Some economies are looking to other countries for growth potential due to uranium exports. Only 30% of the population can read and write, while the World Bank estimates that malnutrition affects more than 50% of the population. Drought and rising population pressures are two of the most pressing problems facing Niger today. The drought has wreaked havoc on one of the country's most vital industries: agriculture. The purchasing power parity and per capita numbers are both 1103.


Since the civil war, Liberia has experienced chronic food insecurity because of low agricultural productivity and low family incomes in the surrounding region. A clerical error occurred. One of the poorest countries on earth, over 64% of the population lives on less than a dollar a day, making it one of the world's poorest countries. By the year 2020, Liberia should have a GDP of $1250.00, bringing it to parity with the rest of the world in terms of per capita purchasing power.


Burundi, like many other African countries, is in the midst of a terrible civil war and a political upheaval. Burundi is the world's third poorest country, with a purchasing power parity GDP per person of $818. (PPP). Over 90% of the population relies on agriculture to make a living and feed themselves. Burundi's population density is also a problem, made worse by the country's small size relative to its population. When calculating per capita and buying power parity, the number 818 comes out to be:


There has been civil strife, overpopulation, and famine in many emerging countries. Although the Democratic Republic of the Congo has an authoritarian government, it's not surprising given that the country contains most of Africa's natural resources. The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Africa's richest country, is devoid of civil conflict and its corrupt government is holding up. Lack of infrastructure, education, and literacy are all factors in the Democratic Republic of Congo's underutilization of its full economic potential. In the United States, the average household makes $785 a year, or $2 a day.
