Poverty is a state or condition in which a person lacks financial resources and basic necessities for a certain standard of living. It is an acute global problem because millions of people around the world live below the poverty line, facing daily difficulties in securing basic needs such as food, water and shelter. This problem leads to a number of negative consequences – health problems, social exclusion, reduced quality of life and increased crime.
