With rapid social-economic development over that last 20 years since independence, Macedonia has undergone significant positive change. However, poverty and unemployment continue to pose significant problems for parts of the population.

With a population of just 2.1 million population, Macedonia is a small nation which has grown significantly in the last two decades. However, with around one in three people unemployed and over a quarter of the population living below the poverty line, many people face a daily struggle.
