South Africa is a kind of Europe by itself : 11 official languages in one country. It's one of the strongest economical countries in Africa, with one of the best telecom infrastructures in the continent.  At the same time, the level of bancarization is very low, the traditional infrastructures not quite developed (eletricity, public transportation, roads...). Half of the population is under the poverty line.
