I do not know too much about Juan Guaidó and care little about that part of the world in any case. But if he ever succeeds in him ambition to replace Maduro I would not envy him the task of having to rebuild his country virtually from stratch.
Rebuilding Venezuela has much to do with US sanctions, which helped to destroy it. As to Guaido having the will or the ability to care about the poor in Venezuela, just forget it. He is supported by the rich and his duty is to the rich. Will we ever learn what the history of Latin America is all about?
Venezuela's problem is gross mismanagement and socialist corruption. For Chavez's daughter is purportedly the richest woman in South American. Pretty good for the daughter of a socialist.
I don't know whether Chavez daughter is corrupt, but I do know that poverty in Venezuela sharply decreased during Chavez rule. Had he not died and I believe that Venezuela would not be in such a bad situation. Unfortunately Maduro doesn't have 10% of Chavez capacity to rule. But even so the number of people supporting Maduro is much greater than those opposing him.
Chavez was as incompetent as Maduro. Socialism is simply to road to poverty. Chavez got away with it for a while because oil prices were high.

He enriched his family and cronies while he could. He gained power by promising Socialism ie get rich without working for it by robbing others who did.

It really serves the Venezuelans right if they are eating from trash cans. It’s Karma. As you sew so shall you reap.

No doubt they are eating out of garbage trucks because they aren't poor
