Bolsonaro struggles to sway Brazil’s poor voters with aid

FILE - Vegetable vendor Maria do Carmo who hawks her products at a local market, says her stall has done much better in recent months as residents suddenly had some cash to spend due to an increase in a welfare program's benefits, in Aracuai, in the Jequitinhonha Valley, Minas Gerais state, Brazil, Oct. 11, 2022. "I'm not saying these people should get free money forever; they need to work. But it is a temporary solution that helps us, too," said do Carmo, whose daughter is a pro-Bolsonaro city councilor.
