She said there were about 200 families receiving public housing in her area on Margarita Island.
Mr Chavez congratulated Valdivieso in a message on Monday when he said she had become his three millionth follower. His regional campaign manager, Carlos Mata Figueroa, announced later that she would receive the home.
