The richest man is not he who has the most, but he who needs the least.
I’m called ‘the ‘, but I don’t feel poor. Poor people are those who only work to try to keep an expensive lifestyle, and always want more and more.
– José Mujica
José Alberto “Pepe” Mujica Cordano, born 20 May 1935, is an Uruguayan politician who was the 40th President of Uruguay between 2010 and 2015. A former urban guerrilla fighter with the Tupamaros, he was imprisoned for 13 years during the military dictatorship in the 1970s and 1980s. A member of the Broad Front coalition of left-wing parties, Mujica was Minister of Livestock, Agriculture, and Fisheries from 2005 to 2008 and a Senator afterwards. As the candidate of the Broad Front, he won the 2009 presidential election and took office as President on 1 March 2010 and stepped down in 2015.
He has been described as “the world’s ‘humblest’ president” due to his austere lifestyle and his donation of around 90 percent of his $12,000 monthly salary to charities that benefit poor people and small entrepreneurs.
