I'm splitting this and giving names to the different
questions.

Philippe Van Kerm's poverty.ado creates global macros with names 
like S_1, etc. 

. mac li 

shows them all and a command like 

. di $S_1 

shows individual global macros. 

Perhaps you're referring to somebody else's poverty.ado. 
If so, the first command should also work. The second 
command will require the correct name. 

N.B. in Stata terminology, "macro" is not a synonym for 
"program".
