It also has an unemployment rate of about 30% which rises to over 50% among the youth. These factors combine leading to approximately 63% of the population living below the poverty line.
Social enterprise and small businesses are vital to help the economy and to bring income into families.

Many of these organizations employ women, who traditionally are more marginalized in the employment market, and are also members of local Fair Trade Organisations to help ensure good standards of working and pay for their employees.
