Venezuelan in the Colombian Desert

She is 63 years old. She lost her job because of the crisis in Venezuela. So she came from one side of the border to the other, now working more hours than ever for less money than ever.

"My mother is Venezuelan and my father, Colombian. Because of the situation in Venezuela, I was forced to come to Colombia. Since I've got only Venezuelan papers, I have to work from Monday to Monday from 5 am to 10 pm. I have two days off per month when I visit my husband and kids who live in the city. And my monthly wage is $50."
