We have this on Brazil and it worked pretty well on early 2000, but 20 years of inflation made the benefit almost meaningless. When the program started the benefit was about 20% of the minimum wage per person in the family, with a limit of 5 people per family

Now it's only 4% of minimum wage, people are just starving again

bolsa-familia? right? don't have correction by inflation? 

Nope. The value is defined by government decree. On positive side, government wants to increase the current value by over 50% to correct the years of inflation although I'm skeptical because our current president is known for making sensational statements only for the sake of spiking controversy
