Why is it a developing country? •Bolivia is one of the poorest and least developed countries in South America.

•One out of eight Bolivians live on less then US$1.25/day, the most vulnerable being women and children living in rural areas, as well as indigenous people who make up 65 percent of the 10 million population. However Bolivia has a relatively well-performing economy due to strong oil, natural gas, and mineral prices, and this has contributed to a decline in poverty rates in recent years.

•Bolivia borrowed a lot of money in the past and still is. So it had to pay out lots of interest each year – which means less money for development.

•More than 25% of Bolivians do not have access to clean safe drinking water, and 44% do not have access to basic sanitation services. Its health indicators are one of the lowest in the Americas, with one child out of 16 dying before the age of five and one woman out of 89 dying during pregnancy or childbirth.

Children have a chance of going to school, and get an average education. Very little people get employed or don't have the chance to even earn some money.

• Maintained a peaceful democracy since 1982. Since January 2006, the Government of Bolivia has introduced economic and social reforms designed to meet the basic needs of the poorest people.

•Bolivia has encountered a lot of economic growth over the past years, and is still trying to improve a lot of health and money situations. http://jpkc.hebtu.edu.cn/NR/rdonlyres/Global/0/025543D0-BF05-4EF1-94D0-AC878E19B775/0/flags.jpg
