Oñondivepa Group's story

The members of this committee engage in a number of business activities including clothes sales, sales of flavored ice drinks, empanadas, tortillas, croquettes, grilled meat, etc.

Most of the group's members are mothers and heads of their households. For this reason, they work hard every day to get ahead.

This committee is entering its 8th loan cycle. Every member has a sense of responsibility and a desire to make progress. They all attend their training sessions. They would like to avoid their children having to suffer the same work and educational limitations that they did and so they work doubly hard to provide their children with opportunities for progress.

One of the group's members, a very hard-working lady called Celina, works collecting and selling recyclable products such as plastic and paper. She passes through neighborhoods daily to collect garbage that can be recycled. She collects these products in a little cart that she owns and once she has a good quantity, she takes it all to sell and earn income for her family.

Celina is very happy to be a part of her committee and she is requesting a loan to buy food for her family such as meat, oil, flour, noodles, fruit and vegetables.

In this group: Celina, Ramona, Maria, Cynthia, Mirian, Mercedes, Mercedes, Mirian, Gloria, Maria, Adriana, Malvi, Leonarda, Maria, Lucia, Elva, Aida, Andresa*, Maria*
