I look forward to identifying small and medium-sized businesses across Southeast USA, and strategically understand their financial situation - the impact that the pandemic has had on their businesses from a financial standpoint. My immediate goal is to identify and assist in the distribution of the COVID-related government allocated funds to these businesses so that they can at least keep paying salaries to their employees, and continue regular operations by adhering to the restriction guidelines. I am extremely proud to be a part of this rebuild, and more excited for the economy. - Sanim Sam Matin
