BURUNDI, THE HEART OF AFRICA

Burundi is one of the poorest countries in the world: close to 74.7% of its population of 10.8 million (2017) live below the poverty line. It is also the second most densely populated country in Africa with about 470 inhabitants per square kilometer. Burundi’s economy is heavily reliant on the agricultural sector which, despite the extreme paucity of arable land, employs 80% of the population. Poverty overwhelmingly affects small rural farmers.
