This paper aimes to analyze the effect of fiscal policy on poverty in Morocco. We studied the influence of the local finance management mode (debt, cash, etc.), on the reduction of poverty between localities. Also, we are using data on expenditure and income shared between 2000 and 2007, we tested the convergence process and the type of fiscal policy can help to improve it. Our result has shown that the policy using debt to finance the expenditure could improve the convergence process and thus help to reduce inequalities of poverty.
