Number of people below the poverty line

Tanzania has made significant economic and social progress in the last two decades. However, inequality has increased, with the poorest and most marginalised having gained little from this growth (World Food Programme, 2020).

Between 2007 and 2016, the country saw a reduction in poverty rate. The number of those living below the poverty, however, has stayed at around 13 million due to high population growth (World Bank, 2019).

There is estimated to be a 3 million unit housing deficit in the country, and income levels of most households are significantly low. 90 percent of the population can afford less than $45 on housing per month (Habitat for Humanity).
