Ecuador is the country with the highest poverty rate in Latin America, nearly 4.5 million people are poor and one out of four Ecuadorians lives on USD 87.57 per month. According to the baseline taken in August 2022 by Fundación Sol de Primavera, 82% of family members survive on informal work, 16% are unemployed and only 2% are adequately employed. In addition, health problems are increasing, and this is one of the aspects most neglected by the state, despite the worrying fact that one third of Ecuador’s children suffer from chronic child malnutrition.
