The CORAZON DE ORO (Heart of Gold) communal bank starts its 10th cycle within the Germán Busch Focal Center. It has been renewed and has many new members as is the case of the President and Recording Secretary. However, for the post of Treasurer Francisca, who has been in 9 previous cycles, was elected which will place a person with experience on the governing board. This communal bank has 8 members.
