Hi Maliha,
I have two daughters, Maliha, both in their early 20's who are out in the world and busy with their lives. One of them sews whimsical creations of colored tutu's for children and sells them besides doing her full time job of being a nanny. My other daughter is a worker at a call center for a cellular phone company who has a rambunctious three year old daughter of her own. These are busy girls. My wife and I are older, retired from working for income, and enjoy our home and garden. Thanks for inquiring about my family. All the best, Jim

Thank you Zidisha for affording me the loan two days ago. I am shopping around for one refurbished computer to add to the existing ones. The extra computer will increase income and help me to advance more in the next loan. I am very grateful because I could not have gotten this loan from any other source in a short time without collateral. I will continue posting my progress in this page.
