Facts about Pakistan
Although it is a resource-rich country, Pakistan suffers from regional strife, high inflation and low growth. Moreover, the country’s public education system does not prepare citizens for the modern economy. Pakistani women average seven years in school, and men, eight. Their combined literacy rate is only 55 percent. Officially, around 30 percent of the population lives in poverty.

Since then, static incomes and rising prices—especially of food—have plunged more Pakistanis into poverty.
