Emerlinda sits in the Caracas home where she’s lived for nearly five years, reflecting on how things have changed since 2013: the year Hugo Chávez died and his hand-picked successor Nicolás Maduro was elected. Like many of Venezuela’s poor, the domestic worker adored Mr. Chávez, the country’s self-professed messiah: He made it possible for her, a native Colombian, to gain Venezuelan citizenship, and his social policies put a roof over her head, and guaranteed her access to health care and an education.
