Peru in Brief

Peru has more than 29 million inhabitants, making it the fourth most populous nation in South America. Although poverty is more deeply entrenched in remote rural areas, the majority of Peru's poor people live in and around Lima, the capital.

  • More than half the country's people exist below the poverty line.
  • Rural poverty has its roots in high rates of illiteracy, particularly among women.
  • Over 37 percent of the population survives on less than U.S.$2 a day.
