About South America's Poor

The economic gap between the rich and poor in most of the countries of South America is wider than in most other continents.

  • The poorest of South America's poor live in peasant communities in remote mountain areas in Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador.
  • In the rural Andean region, three out of four people live below the poverty line.
  • Poverty in southern South America is greatest among indigenous people.
  • In many large South American cities, crude shacks and slums adjoin luxury apartments and skyscrapers.
