Argentine President Visits Couple Who Sent Cash to “Move the Country Forward”

BUENOS AIRES – Argentine President Mauricio Macri visited on Wednesday a married couple in the northern province of Santa Fe who sent him 100 pesos ($7) to help “move the country forward” after he was elected last December.

The president took advantage of an official trip to a General Motors plant in the province to make a stop at the roadside grill run by Alfredo Farias and wife Monica Silva.

On Dec. 11, Farias sent then-President-elect Macri a “warm note” accompanied by a 100-peso bill, the Office of the President said in a statement.

Farias and Silva were surprised to see Macri step out of his car to sit down and share a cup of yerba mate with them.

Alfredo and travels the country collecting data about butterflies with the hope of one day opening a butterfly sanctuary, while Monica regularly distributes food in a poor neighborhood of Rosario, Santa Fe’s largest city, according to the statement from Macri’s office.
