Hello. My name is Santos Matamoros. I am 66 years old. For all of my life I have been a tailor, which is how I have helped my household and family to get ahead. I am very well known in my neighborhood and everyone says that I go to great pains to do a good job. That's why people like what I sew for them. I am a determined woman and am always at my clients' disposal for whatever work they order. I currently need to purchase spare parts and various materials for my sewing machine. I also need to purchase fabric, thread, etc., seeing the Christmas season is coming up and people buy a lot of clothes. I need this loan to be able to get ahead.
