Bolivia is known as the second poorest country of South America. 39% of the Bolivian population lives in extremely poor conditions.

On the other hand, Bolivians have very rich cultural traditions which includes 36 groups of indigenous groups, or 20% of the total population in this country. Aymara and Quechua are the biggest indigenous populations of Bolivia. Poverty prevents people to cover their basic needs, and also leads to exclusion from education and inability to develop professional or business competences.
