Is democracy good for the poor?

You are now aware that poverty exists on across the globe.  You are also aware that there are different types of government structures.  Countries may embrace democracy, autocracy, or be somewhere in between.  Should world leaders actively seek to install democratic governments?  Would installing democracy help end large scale absolute poverty?
