This paper postulate two poverty indices based on a fuzzyfication of the poverty line approach and shows that they satisfy some of the usual axioms in the poverty line literature. It also shows that the headcount ratio is a particular case of a poverty measure based on fuzzy sets. Finally this paper postulates that fuzzy version of poverty measures will not satisfy the transfer axiom.
