In my piont of view in order to reduce poverty people in poor countries should have fewer children. They should , but it is difficult to plan amount of offspring because people who live in poverty don't have a clue about a contraception, so it;'s hard to have fewer children. I want to add that providing children adequate conditions for instance good education, foood , clothes, and help is expensive so poor people can't do it. It's easier to hold one child than more children. In this situation people spend less money and at the same time work and make money, so they become richer. In fact the brithrate is lower , but it's not a problem , because of overpopulation.
