    Dear Lenders,

    My Tomatoes crops were destroyed by heavy rains and this affected my farm yield and disorganized my loan repayment plan . I have planted more tomatoes which will started maturing after three months and I hope to bring my loan repayment current my then. How ever I would like to reschedule my loan payment to the minimal possible which I will be able to pay on weekly bases. I hope you will bear with me and accept my new payment plan
