According to the http://www.thefreedictionary.com

Mendicant is defined as: Depending on alms for a living; practicing begging.

This documentary, “The Mendicant Society” touches on how our remittances maybe encouraging a behavior for those recipients of remittances to remain dependent and lose their motivation to find their own source of income. 

… like Juan Tamad waiting for the fruit to fall. 

On documentary’s trailer there is a quote from Anzia Yezierska – “Give a beggar a dime and he’ll bless you. Give him a dollar and he’ll curse you for withholding the rest of your fortune. Poverty is a bag with a hole in the bottom.”

It reminds me of a proverb that says "If you give a man a fish you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish you feed him for a lifetime."
