Top 10 poorest Countries in the World (2016)

Sometimes days seem to be heavy. Maybe things did not go as you wanted or are you frustrated about how you are in your life … Although you might have perfect valid reasons for your frustration, it’s also important that you sometimes realize that your life is for many reasons the best worth it. It is a privilege that we can have westerners all things (what our hearts want). It also includes very simple things, such as internet connection, which allows you to read this article. Unfortunately, not everyone is so rich anymore. If a country has a lot of money, it can develop further. If a country is poor, it can not develop. Usually, even the most basic needs are not even available, such as water, food, living space and clothing. The vast majority of these poor countries are in the continent of Africa. This is the top 10 list of the poorest countries of 2016, measured by the average income per person per year ($ 1 = € 0.908).

10. Guinea ($ 523.10 / person)

Guinea - TOP 10 POOREST COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD

Since 1990, there has been no economic stability in the small West African country of Guinea. In the period before that, the country earned a lot of money on mining and agriculture. When it became less, the land fell into decline. This was reinforced by various social policy crises. The economy is still largely determined by agriculture, but this is difficult because farmers depend on outdated information and outdated technology. Investors seem to completely eliminate the country …

9. Ethiopia ($ 505 / person)

 TOP 10 POOREST COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD

Ten (middle) east of Africa is the great country of Ethiopia. In the past, Ethiopia was a relatively poor country. Today, especially in the course of recent years, there is a rising line in the development of the country. Theoretically, the country has the right tools. There has been a major political reform in the country, giving it more economic growth and stability. Since 2007, the country can place itself in many other African countries in terms of economic progress. Despite this, Ethiopia still belongs to the poorest 10 countries in the world. This is due to the high population density and the dependence of an underdeveloped, outdated agriculture. Still, there is still hope for the future of this country …

8. Gambia ($ 488.60 / person)

In the small West African country of Gambia, they struggle tremendously with trying to grow the economy. Probably the country’s biggest problem is the lack of diversity in their economic system. The Gambians live almost exclusively from agriculture and fisheries, which are also very vulnerable to bad weather. In addition, the soil fertility of the agricultural land is low, which then has a negative impact on the quality and quantity of seasonal yields. All of this causes more than half of the people in this country to live below the poverty line. In the country every year, when the rainfall is at its peak, a “hungry season”. In short, a country with very little future perspective …

7. Congo ($ 484.20 / person)

TOP 10 POOREST COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD

The centrally located Congo is (after Algeria) the second largest country in Africa . The population is huge, 77 million people. This makes in a poor country like the Congo that there is (still) less money per person to get around. A large part of the population is unemployed. This results in very poor living conditions. In fact, Congo has a wealth of valuable natural resources, such as forests, fertile farmland and water. But the people in the country are victims of a very unstable, corrupt political system that maintains poverty in the country.

6. Madagascar ($ 463 / person)

Madagaskar - TOP 10 POOREST COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD

Madagascar is a country located on an island, located on the east coast of Africa. The situation in this country is very scary. The living standards have not improved in the past 20 years, but only worsened.Nearly 70% of the population lives below the poverty line. The problem with this country is the unilateral economy, which is aimed at agriculture, a very vulnerable industry. Madagascar also has a lack of agricultural land and a huge population growth … All this makes the country poorer and poorer and poorer …

5. Liberia ($ 454.30 / person)

Liberia - TOP 10 POOREST COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD

On the west coast of Africa is the small country of Liberia. This country has suffered a war between 1999 and 2003. That did not make the country economically very good. Also, the country is primarily dependent on agriculture, which is also underdeveloped and obsolete here, as in many other countries. The infrastructure in this country is extremely bad. More than 80% of the population lives here at less than $ 1.25 a day.

4. Niger ($ 415.40 / person)

Niger - TOP 10 POOREST COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD

In the north of Africa, under Algeria, is the vast country of Niger. The country is known as one of the most underdeveloped countries in the field of different categories. Although child labor is decreasing and education increases, poverty continues to stagnate. This is because the country’s two largest revenue sources are heavily dependent on climate and weather. It is about agriculture and the recovery of valuable natural resources, such as gold, uranium and oil. Niger continues to struggle in its economic development.

3. Central African Republic ($ 333.20 / person)

Central African Republic is located in the middle of Africa. In the past, this country has had a lot of war and political instability. In addition, it has a very poor infrastructure, which limits the distribution of the sources of the country. Here, as in many other African countries, the economy is dependent on primary agriculture, which is also outdated. This means that only 4% of the country is used.

2. Burundi ($ 267.10 / person)

Burundi - TOP 10 POOREST COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD

The very small, centrally located country, Burundi is extremely poor. Repeated violence and political disputes are the biggest offenders for the country. The country is constantly busy lifting itself. Here, 67% of the population lives below the poverty line. The hostile political rivalry has also been disastrous for the development of agriculture in the country. This means that only a small amount of farmland is available. And the ground that can be used for this purpose is extremely vulnerable to changing climates and weather conditions. With a population growing, food prices rising and an average income of only $ 267.10 per person, Burundi is number 2 on this list.

1. Malawi ($ 226.50 / person)

Malawi - TOP 10 POOREST COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD

The south-east African country of Malawi is the poorest country in the world. It is a very densely populated country. There are 16 million people living on a small surface. The country suffers from all categories possible: absence of education, poor medical facilities, poor infrastructure, poor living conditions … Here only agriculture is used as a source of income. Here too, as in many other African countries, this is obsolete and primitive. The huge weather disparities in the country are also making this source of income little good either. Also, the number of large wounded and dead as a result of poor medical care causes an even worse income. It does not seem that Malawi will fall in its position on this list …
