Injustice of Poverty in Honduras

The living conditions of the Honduras population are all time low and poverty is rampant in the region. Being the third poorest country in the Latin America, the Government of Honduras has not been able to eliminate the poverty. The problem of poverty is mainly dominant in rural areas and where 86 percent of the extremely poor people live in the rural areas.

The living conditions of the Honduras population are all time low and poverty is rampant in the region.

Farmers, rural-women, manual worker and landless inhabitants including some of the ethnic and the indigenous people are reeling under the poverty in Honduras. The small-scale farmers have no access to lands and as result they are very much dependent on remittances and also dependent on other source of income which they get by working on different cities. Though they have access to more land for which they produce vital food crops however they have to look for other kinds of work to help sustain their family members.

The feeble groups are the landless laborers who are very less involved in the agricultural production and their basic mode of survival is by working as laborers. They are the most susceptible groups. Also another susceptible group is the women and the indigenous groups. The women folk work long hours and take care of their family of seven children.  The income of these groups is very less compared to the households which are headed by the men. Moreover, 70 percent of the women are illiterate. 8 millions Hondurans are waiting to live the life of dignity and although they have no choice but still they have hope in their eyes.
