The implementation of a government-funded health care system not only enables people to become healthier, and therefore arguably more productive, it also relieves employers from the cost of providing health insurance. This could enable them to put money previously spent on health insurance towards other areas of their business. Without the fear of losing insurance, people may also be more inclined to start their own business, leading to an increase in the number of jobs available. A decrease in health-related expenses could enable an individual to spend their money on other products and services, possibly increasing profits for many
According to FAO (2006) it is the condition in which people lack the minimum amount of income requirements in order to maintain the average standard of living in the society in which they live. Moreover, it is defined relative to the members of a society and, therefore, differs across countries.

According to Encyclopedia Americana (1989) poverty can be viewed from two different perspectives and these two points of view are: (i) “ moneylessness” which means both an insufficiency of cash and serious inadequacy of resources of all kinds to satisfy and meet basic human needs, such as, nutrition, rest, and body maintenance; and (ii) “powerlessness” meaning those that lack the chances and choices open to them and whose lives seem to them to be governed by forces and persons outside their control. From this, it is seen that poverty has various manifestations which include among others: lack of income and productive resources enough to make sure sustainable livelihood, hunger and malnutrition, limited or lack of access to education, ill health, and other basic services, increased morbidity and mortality from illness, homelessness and inadequate, unsafe and degraded environment and social discrimination and exclusion LITERATURE REVIEW Vital to the clamour for policies and programmes that will reduce poverty is the issue of the conceptualization of poverty.

The ability of an individual or a family to get out of a dangerous cycle of entrapment in subsidized housing and perpetuating low income depends not only on person’s or a family’s ability to motivate themselves and achieve better situation, but also requires significant help from the government and public organizations. Shin notes that the solution to the problem involves giving subsidized families realistic opportunities such as becoming educated, opportunities to get trained, and opportunities to find sustainable employment; and fostering the motivation to take advantage of them (341). In many cases, it is the task of government and public organizations to provide effective intervention and psychological help to the people in subsidized housing. Policymakers need to provide housing aid programs which take into account a diversity of homeless population and their conditions instead of providing unconditional shelter for anyone who applies for it. Policymakers also need to recognize that homeless and low-income people are ordinary people down on their luck who are in variety of difficult situations.

Poverty may be defined as either absolute or relative. Absolute poverty or destitution refers to the lack of means necessary to meet basic needs such as food, clothing and shelter.

Poor people are unable to fulfill basic survival needs such as food, clothing, shelter. These are the needs of lowest order and assume top priority.

For many poor families meeting their basic needs such as food, shelter, water and cloths is a serious problem, this become more eventually worse if they are phased with both unemployment and underemployment where there is poor productive in the land or any other type of income. Such people usually place a shark where ever there is an open space so that they can find a place to sleep. The government is trying its best by providing RDP houses but the bigger the population increase the higher poverty increased and therefor the government fails to cover all poor
