Economy

Corina lives in a luxurious house but can not frequent restaurants; Federico , journalist, does not have for the cinema; and Alida , a seller, longs to eat chicken but it is not enough. Even with their class differences, the crisis changed their lives.

The arepa – corn tortilla typical of Venezuela – is eaten with butter and cheese, but Alida Huzz , a saleswoman in a favela in the west of Caracas, can not pay for the filling.

Butter costs 810 thousand bolivars, 31% of the minimum income that President Nicolás Maduro -who seeks to re-elect on Sunday- has increased three times in 2018 due to hyperinflation that -according to the IMF- will increase from 13,800% this year.
