The role of technology to reduction of poverty
We can use technology to alleviate poverty in Africa
Poverty is a major obstacle to the economic development of the world's underdeveloped countries. If Africa wants to get out there they need to take an effective step against poverty. We all know that the expected results can be achieved if Africa can use the technology right path.

But lower classes don’t have resources to educate their children. Even they educate youth on this continent are suffering from unemployment. Poverty is a major obstacle to the economic development of the world's underdeveloped and many developing countries. If anyone tries to remove poverty from the underdeveloped section there is a big obstacle that’s name is the Vicious circle of poverty. Which hinders all development of the country. The vicious cycle of poverty is the aggregation of some forces that keep a country poor by interacting with each other. Ragnar Nurkse was an Estonian international economist and policymaker.

The concept of the vicious cycle of poverty can be explained by the side of Capital demand and supply of capital. By the side of Capital demand - When production is low in the country, people's income is low. People have less purchasing power because of lower-income. That is why the demand for goods in the market is less. Due to the low demand for goods, the amount of investment is low. Low investment means less demand for capital and its utilization. That's why Due to this reason the production is less again. And this situation comes back again and again as a result a country is trapped in poverty. But there is a way out. If Africa wants to see the light of hope, they need to take proper and effective steps against poverty. Technology can be advantageous here if it can be used in a proper way.
