About Bolivia

Bolivia is a lower-middle-income country, but one of the poorest in South America, with a population of about 10.027.254 (Census 2012) and a GDP of $ 27.04 billion (2012 estimate); nearly 36 percent of its population of 10.6 million (2013) are aged 0 to 14 years and one third live in rural areas.

The country has a multi-ethnic society and 62 percent of the population self-identify as indigenous people. Bolivia ranks 108th out of 186 countries in the Human Development Index and 97th out of 186 countries on the Gender Inequality Index. Bolivia has suffered economically from its landlocked position and its political and social instability. These issues haven’t allowed sustainable economic growth to be achieved.
