Top 10 Countries Receiving Foreign Aid In Africa

Written by Keren Mikva

4. Kenya – $2.654 billion

Kenya’s $4.10 billion gross domestic product in 2013 resulted in a gross national income per capita of $930, classifying it as a low-income, developing country. Of the population of 44.35 million people, 45.9 percent live below the poverty line. While Kenya is not dependent on aid to have a functioning economy, it does need donor funds to help bolster development spending. Approximately 15 percent of Kenya’s public expenditures are financed by foreign aid, but the country maintains a strong annual revenue performance and is able to finance most of its public services through taxpayer money.
