Señor Eufrín C. Calderón became a client of this communal bank on the 9th of October, 2006. His first loan was used to develop his shoe selling business. Ever since then, he has received a number of loans and has always been very responsible with making his payments. He and his wife, Señora Saturnina Alborta Vera, run their household and raise their little son with a great deal of dedication and care. They live in Villa Mercedes which is quite a distance from where they work but of course, this does not stop them from working hard and pushing themselves so that they can better both their own lives and that of their son.
