    About 42 percent of Argentinians live at or below the poverty rate, the government said.

    阿根廷政府稱,大約42%的阿根廷人生活在貧困線或以下。

    The rate of poverty in the nation of 45 million people has increased since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

    自冠狀病毒大流行開始以來,這個擁有4500萬人口的國家的貧困率有所上升。

    The pandemic has also caused three years of deep economic recession to worsen.

    這場大流行還導致持續三年的深度經濟衰退進一步惡化。

    Eduardo David Rodriguez is one of the more than 18 million Argentinians living in poverty.

    愛德華多·大衛·羅德里格斯是生活在貧困中的1800多萬阿根廷人之一。

    He brings fruits and vegetables to sell in a market in Buenos Aires twice a week to help support his family.

    他每周兩次帶著水果和蔬菜在布宜諾斯艾利斯的一個市場上出售,以養家糊口。

    He lives with his wife and two of their four children in a small house outside the country's capital.

    他和妻子以及四個孩子中的兩個住在首都郊外的一座小房子里。

    There is no bathroom, running water or fuel to cook with.

    那里沒有衛生間、自來水和做飯用的燃料。

    "Work here is tough, that's the truth, but there's no other option than to come here and bring the family back the daily bread," Rodriquez told Reuters.

    羅德里格斯告訴路透社:“這里的工作很辛苦,這是事實,但除了來這里給家人帶回每天的面包之外,我們別無選擇?!?/span>

    He said he earns about 12,000 pesos, or $60, each month.

    他說,他每個月的收入約為1.2萬比索(約合60美元)。

    For Rodriquez and his wife, who also works, their monthly family income usually reaches around 39,000 pesos.

    對于羅德里格斯和他的也在工作的妻子來說,他們的家庭月收入通常達到3.9萬比索左右。

    That is well short of the poverty line for a family of four—about 67,000 pesos.

    這遠遠低于一個四口之家的貧困線——約6.7萬比索。

    Argentina is rich in natural resources, from cattle and corn to natural gas.

    阿根廷擁有豐富的自然資源,比如牛、玉米、天然氣。

    But inflation, poor economic decision-making, and years of debt crises have severely weakened the country's economy.

    但通貨膨脹、糟糕的經濟決策和多年的債務危機嚴重削弱了該國的經濟。

    "Sometimes we can only eat so much.

    “有時候我們只能吃這么多。

    We don't indulge in luxuries but, well, thank God we don't starve," said Rodriguez's wife Maria.

    我們不沉溺于奢侈品,但是,感謝上帝,我們沒有挨餓,”羅德里格斯的妻子瑪麗亞說。

    She works in the family's neighborhood clearing storm drains, which carry water away from the streets.

    她在她家附近的社區清理暴雨排水溝,排水溝是用來把街道上的水排走的。

    "Sometimes we have enough and sometimes not."

    “有時我們有足夠的錢,有時又沒有?!?/span>

    In his free time, Rodriguez teaches football, the sport called soccer in the United States, to children from other poor homes.

    在業余時間,羅德里格斯向其他貧困家庭的孩子們傳授足球,這項運動在美國被稱為“soccer”。

    He works to support their hopes of a professional career in the sport as an escape from poverty.

    他致力于支持他們成為職業的足球運動員的希望,以此來擺脫貧困。

    "I love being with the boys, and I come to do it without any obligation and without any salary, I do it from passion, because the truth is this is what keeps me going every day," Rodriguez said.

    羅德里格斯說:“我喜歡和男孩們在一起,我沒有任何義務來做這件事,也沒有任何薪水,我是出于激情來做這件事的,因為這實際上是我每天堅持下去的動力?!?/span>
