This paper aims to determine the relationship between macro-economic variables such as, inequality and economic growth on poverty for period of 2000-2010. Data were extracted from income-expenditure survey of rural families. The results of the study indicated that poverty and income inequality decreased slightly during the period under study. The results showed that due to increasing inequality and economic participation, the percentage of poor families has been increased, but increase in savings has caused absolute poverty to decline.
