Oñondivepa Group's story

The “Oñondivepa” committee was organized when various neighbors from Villa Elisa got together. All the group members are involved in independent commercial activities, like sales. They are a very solid and organized group.

All of the group members are mothers who are involved in a variety of activities designed to strengthen family economy and develop their businesses in a sustainable way aiming at consistent growth with permanent financial assistance.

One of the members is Hermelinda, who sells clothing. She buys her merchandise in Asunción’s Mercado 4 and then visits businesses in Villa Elisa to offer her products. This is exhausting work because she must carry all her wares and she does not have a vehicle.

Some days sales are very good; others, not so much so. However, income from the sales helps her quite a bit with household expenses and Hermelinda states that this is very important to her.

For this reason, she asked for funding to renew her stock. She used the funds to buy t-shirts, pants and shirts.

In this group: Hermelinda, Adelaida, Mara, Felicia , Maria, Cristina, Sadi, Gloria, Juana, Yessica, Leonarda, Edis, Mariela, Elsi , Felicita
