    Grace paid her loan back early and it has been a pleasure to help in a small way in furthering her business venture. Would certainly invest again.

    Kindly allow me more time to sort out my debts by end of month. This is as a result of delayed payments but i'll regularise as soon as possible.

    I would like to change due to late payments by clients and slow business caused by the current political environment in Kenya. I am expecting most clients to pay within the next two months hence the reason for requesting for two month instalments adjustments. Meanwhile, i am greatful for your continued support

    The previous loan was useful for my business as i was able to pay for advertising & business stock. The profits i got were enough to repay the loan.
