GET TO KNOW THE POOREST PRESIDENT IN THE WORLD

Date:

Meet José Mujica. He may look like your average farmer or grandfather, but he is anything but. This man is globally known as the world’s “poorest President” because he lives a life of humility… all while leading the country of Uruguay.

As a man who truly cares about his people, he doesn’t take an obscene amount of money to just act as a politician. He donates about 90% of his $12,000 monthly salary to charities that benefit poor people and small entrepreneurs. Other countries, listen up.

It’s not uncommon to see Jose dressed like this. He doesn’t care about money and appearances, but just leading his country.

He has literally spent his entire life fighting for his country.

He was a guerilla fighter that battled for the rights of the country’s citizens, was imprisoned twice and was shot 6 times after an escape attempt.

He actually is a part-time farmer. He and his wife also grow and sell flowers. He also drives a 1987 Volkswagon Beetle.

He only has two guards positioned on his road. Along with his beloved 3-legged dog Manuela, of course.

Instead of acting like he is better than everybody else, the president of a country wholeheartedly believes that he IS like everybody else. In a time when it seems that rich politicians rule the world, learning about Jose is truly refreshing.
