Lesotho is a small, mountainous, and landlocked country, surrounded by its much larger neighbor, South Africa. It has a population of about two million, and nominal per capita gross domestic product (GDP) of $1,299. Lesotho is classified as a lower-middle-income country.
OVERALL RISK : MEDIUM. Lesotho is generally considered a safe country to travel to. However, even though it has served as a safe haven and a sanctuary from all the troubles that are hitting the rest of Africa pretty hard – Lesotho also has its issues with crime , both petty and violent, illnesses and poverty.
$647 million (33% of GDP) (31 December 2010 est.) All values, unless otherwise stated, are in US dollars. The economy of Lesotho is based on agriculture, livestock, manufacturing, mining, and depends heavily on inflows of workers’ remittances and receipts from the Southern African Customs Union (SACU).
Coffee is Rwanda’s main export, accounting for 60% of the countries foreign exchange earnings . Tea accounts for about 30%. Rwanda has a small industrial sector that only employs about 3% of the population. Other than agricultural processing, there is also a brewery.
Rwanda is the 19th poorest country in the world with a per capita income of around USD$700. Arsenal is one of the richest football clubs in the world. It’s not surprising therefore that the nearly USD$40 million has upset quite a few people.
One reason why Rwanda is poor is its lack of natural resources — the nation is landlocked and contains a mostly rural and agrarian populace. Thirty-five percent of Rwandans practice subsistence farming and some of Rwanda’s main sources of income are through agricultural exports like coffee and tea.
