Divino Niño Group's story

This committee was formed after the breakup of a comittee in the same area which integrated these nine women in the current group. The present committee is in its third year.

Let us speak about Mrs. Julia Azucenal Gonzales who is 30 years old, has 2 children who stay in the house of her mother in law while she walks the streets of Asuncion selling her merchandise. She rises early every day to buy fruit and vegetables in the Abastos Market, once she buys the fruit and vegetables she goes to the streets to offer her products and at the same time she collects discarded plastic bottles because she can sell them and make some extra income. She arrives back home in the afternoon after a hard days work in the street and spends time with her children, monitoring all of their school activities because she does not neglect her motherly duties.

The credit that she receives from the Fundacion Paraguaya is indispensable for her commercial activities. The majority of the members of this committee work in the sale of various types of merchandise.
