Why does one - fifth of Brazil's people live in poverty even though Brazil has an amazing economy?

One reason us many Brazilian cities are surrounded by favelas, or slum areas. More people move to these areas because they have no money and are searching for a job in factories. The government has tried to clean up these areas, but more people have no money for housing so they move there. While Brazil's economy is very strong because of mining, logging, and is the worlds number one coffee producer, this destroys the land and forest.
