Facts about Lesotho's economy
In 2014, Lesotho recorded a slow economic performance despite a commendable output since 2010. This came after a weak performance in the construction and manufacturing sectors.

There have been efforts to alleviate the situation. However, due to the prevalence of HIV, the actions remained futile.
