25 Poorest Countries In The World

#12 – Togo

The official name of Togo is the Togolese Republic. This country is located in the West African region. The overall area of this African country is 56,785 km2 which makes it the 125th largest country in the world. It has been estimated that over 7,550,000 people live in Togo. The capital city of this country is called Lome.

Togo was for a long time considered one of the poorest countries in the world, but recently its economy started to improve. However, in front of Togo are many years to fully reorganize its economy and increase the GDP per capita which is at the moment only $1,500.
