The bailout is, however, befitting rich countries as the allocation is based on each country’s quota shares in the IMF.

The United States, for example, is entitled to SDR79 billion which is over US$111 billion, and is more than five times what all the low-income countries are getting.

Georgieva said about US$275 billion is going to emerging and developing countries, of which low-income countries will receive about US$21 billion.

The rich countries: China, Japan, Germany, France and the United Kingdom, are each getting more than all the low-income countries are getting.

Below is a list of how much some countries are getting:
