Poverty is more than just a disadvantage, it is a way of life that can crush any person’s will and their ambitions altogether. We are about to enter the world of the poorest and needy, a world in which human life itself has little to no value whatsoever. The people living in these countries, have very little to look forward to, unless they are a part of the privileged few who can afford the necessities of a decent life.
You may not think much of the suffering people of far away lands, but hopefully by looking at how little other people have, you will learn to better appreciate what you have and how lucky you are. This being said, here are the 10 poorest countries in the world.
9Niger, annual income – $771
Niger is the 22nd largest nation in the world in terms of size, with a population of more than 17 million people. Most of the people in Afghanistan live on less than $771 a year, and considering how bad the conditions over there really are, there isn’t really much that people from Niger can do to change that. Also, more than 80% of Niger’s surface is covered by the Sahara desert, with only 20% of the surface left for growing crops or any form of industry that may bring them a source of income.
