Top 10 Poorest Countries in Africa Of 2015!


Africa is regarded by many as the most undeveloped and poorest continent in the world. The reason behind this rather hasty conclusion is not far fetched. Most of the countries are not developed and they depend on old sources of income such as Agriculture and mining without modern technology.

Terrorism, Smuggling and Corruption are the major deterrents to the stagnating economy of most african countries. It is estimated that about 36% of Africans live on less than US$1 per day.

The 10 Poorest Countries in Africa as of 2015 are listed below
