Socioeconomic Profile of the Emigrant from Medellín to Spain: An approach from the experience of the “Paisas en el exterior” network
AbstractThe migration of Colombians to Spain has grown considerably in recent years, and so has the flow of remittances. This article examines the socio-economic profile of migrants from Medellín to Spain, identifying the main characteristics that define them. Additionally, we studied the use that both migrants and their families in Colombia would like to provide to the sent resources, as the largest percent of these remittances continues to be focused towards consumption to a great extent. These results are obtained from a survey conducted on a group of migrants in Spain
