Introduction

The Republic of Rwanda is located in the central region of Africa, where we can notice the African Great Lakes. It is one of the smallest nations in mainland Africa with such border partners as Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The nation is also known as the "land of thousand hills" because of its above average elevation.

In spite of its small size, it is a densely populated region with more than 12 million citizens. It means that in spite of its total GDP (PPP) of $33.45 billion, the average wealth per citizen is only $2,641.
