Daylin Bracho and other women members of the “Venezuelan Business Woman” group.

In 2018, when the economic crisis hitting Venezuela hit rock bottom, Delin Bracho decided to seek a better future abroad, as millions of his compatriots had already done.

“The situation was terrible. No work, no food, nothing,” the 35-year-old recalled in an interview with BBC Mundo.

Her husband and sister had already left so she didn’t think twice.

Grabbing her passport, she left the town of Valera in western Venezuela’s Trujillo state with her three children for Ducubita, in the extreme east of the country.
