Oñondivepa Group's story

This committee was created thanks to one of its members' finding out about the program from a friend who was part of another group and decided to invite her friends and neighbors to form a new committee. And so the Oñodivepa Committee was created, now in its ninth loan cycle with the Committee of Enterprising Women of Fundación Paraguaya. It's made up of women who invest in a variety of activities depending on their skills.

One member, Ramona C., sells food products and has invested her money in supplies, including meats, baked goods, charcoal, seasonings, flour, oil, etc., to grow her business. Every day she prepares food, which either she or her children go out to sell. They frequent populated places like squares, markets, or bus stops, where they quickly sell their product.

This is how Ramona gets her daily income for her family, and she feels very satisfied with what she has gotten thus far.
