The People in Peru affect the country's poverty because of the high amount of contagious diseases and the low amount of education. Peru is in poverty because the lack of education limits the citizen’s abilities to get jobs that earn more money (Human Development Reports). This causes more poverty amongst the people because the jobs that the citizens get are more likely to be service based jobs which give inconsistent pay which means that it is harder for the citizens of Peru to save money. Contagious diseases such as Hepatitis A, Typhoid fever and the Zika virus (The World Factbook: Peru) in Peru have caused poverty because when the citizens of Peru get these diseases, they have to spend money that they likely do not have on doctors and medicine to help with/get rid of the diseases.
The place/location of Peru affects the country’s poverty. This is because the poverty of the country limits the people's accessibility. The country won’t have access to foods outside their country and will only have access to foods that they can grow. This is an inconvenience because if there is bad weather, a bad growing season or hurricane etc. people the crops won’t grow and the people will starve. This is also a problem because if Peru is limited to certain foods, they will most likely not be able to get the calories and nutrients an average person needs. Getting the right amount of calories and nutrients is crucial to maintaining a healthy immune system, especially for adolescents.
The past of Peru affects the country’s poverty. This is because being that the country was only colonized in 1821(CIA), the country has had much time to develop and prosper. The country has approximately 195 years of independence, this might seem like a lot, but it’s not that much time to make laws, create a government, make cities and buildings etc. not to mention the that they government needs to find the money for all of this too. The past also affects the country's poverty because if the country never had a good school education to provide, then the future adults of the country will not be educated to do anything all that successful. Hence, if the adults aren’t educated than the country can never really grow or innovate.
The politics in Peru affect the country’s poverty because the lack of connectivity between communities on the east slopes of the Andes mountain range and the separate communities in the highlands (The World Factbook: Peru). The lack of connectivity between communities means that it is harder for people in very isolated places to get jobs in other communities and to get good education past high school. The lack of education and good paying jobs in other communities means that it is harder for the people in isolated regions with few jobs to find jobs and to get the education that they would need for those jobs.
The peace of Peru effects the country's poverty because the two wars that took place which were, War for independence from Spain (1820-1826) and the War of the Pacific (1879-1883) (Worldbook: Peru), left the nation in more debt. Because of that they wouldn't have enough money to build schools and a better economy which would mostly take Peru out of poverty, because of the immense amount of debt they would have to control which would be hard to contain especially because they don't have a thriving government and economy. Right now Peru is peaceful and with the people and president not having anything to oppose there is low risk of another war occurring which is very good for the developing nation.
