Catalina Benitez prepares mate, a herbal tea, in her home kitchen in La Matanza
Catalina Benitez prepares mate, a herbal tea, in her home kitchen in La Matanza, in the greater Buenos Aires area, July 29, 2015. Benitez, a single mother of four, used to cry whenever heavy rain flooded her squalid, one-room shanty house on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, rotting her furniture and overflowing the latrine. Now, thanks to a government housing scheme in slums, she is the proud owner of a two-floor brick house with running water, electricity and a proper sewage system. Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner's heavy government spending has fueled inflation of about 30 percent a year and her trade and currency controls stalled growth, infuriating many middle-class Argentines and business groups. But it has won her support among the poor. With Fernandez de Kirchner unable to stand for a third presidential term, those supporters are now backing her anointed candidate, Daniel Scioli, in presidential elections in October.
