Oñondivepa Group's story

The Oñondivepa committee is made up of 11 women from the Pintos neighborhood in the Acahay district in the Department of Paraguari. These women make a living through, food sales, raising pigs and chicken as well as running stores. In the group there are also women who wish to start up in other activities though they are all of modest means.

They are thankful to the Fundacion Paraguaya for giving them the opportunity to have a business in their homes without having to neglect their children. The committee has the intention of working to be successful and are committed to being supportive and responsible in the face of any situation which may come up.

One of the members is Amelia who works raising pigs, poultry (chickens and ducks) as well as keeping dairy cattle. All her efforts go towards maintaining her her family and her animals which are her sources of income and food for her family. She sells her animals in the Ybycui market or at street markets organized by the committee.

She says that she will keep working to get ahead and is requesting the loan to buy wire mesh to build animal corrals.

In this group: Amelia, Agripina, Ana, Gloria, Mirian, Estelvina, Francisca, Del Rosario, Magdalena, Fulvia, Rosa
