Hello! My name is María and I'm venezuelan. Right now Venezuela is going through a very rough economic/social crisis and it's very hard to get by. There's an enormous food and medicine shortage, and with my salary (roughly $31 a month) it's impossible to live, I can't buy enough food for me or my family, I can't buy clothes, I can't pay for college or even buy books. These are some of the restrictions we have when buying food or medicines:
- We can only buy food/medicines/hygiene products once a week according to the last digit of your I.D. number.(And only if there's food. If there isn't any, you just don't get to buy anything the rest of the week)
- To avoid people buying food or medicines with fake I.D. numbers, establishments check our fingerprints through a system to see if we are who we say we are and if we already bought food.
- Pregnant women have to take an echo of their fetus to be able to buy diapers, formula, etc.
Also, we have the highest inflation in the world, which is why it's impossible to live with minimum wage. I want to have the opportunity to do a postgraduate course on Project Management and have higher chances to get a job abroad that can help me have a better quality of life and help my family. The postgraduate course details are the following:
- It's in the Universidad Católica Andrés Bello.
- It's four trimesters long.
- The total cost is $1500
- The degree is "Specialist in Project Management"
Thank you for reading this and thank you for helping me! It really means a lot to me and every collaboration counts!
