Hello, pleased to meet you. My name is Oralia L., I sell ladies’ wallets and I have done this for a number of years as it generates enough income for the maintenance of my home and to support my family. A few years ago I bought this small house which I remodel little by little and at the moment I would like to fix the courtyard – to lay down cement and to put bricks around it so that it is not made out of earth. For this reason I am asking for your help so that I can improve my home. Thank you.
With the profits I make from selling ladies' wallets I can cover all of my obligations to this loan. Greetingsh.
