Bangladesh is one of the poorest countries in Asia. The main causes of poverty of this country are illiteracy and corruption. It is considered as one of the major labor exporting countries of the world.

Ethiopia is considered as the poorest country in the world but it is also considered to be one of the oldest nations in the world. It depends on the rainfed agriculture. It is one of the few countries that were never colonized, although it was occupied by Italy from 1936–1941. Zambia is one of the poorest countries in the world and is considered a least developed country. Malnutrition is a chronic and difficult problem of Zambia. The economy of Kenya has been continued to be the largest in the East African region and third largest in Sub-Saharan Africa after South Africa and Nigeria respectively. At present Kenya is one of the most highly literate countries in sub-Saharan Africa.
