    He was not available as I had to contact one of his referees and told me that he will remind him to pay or reschedule his loan accordingly.

    I have advised Richard to re-adjust his loan payments plan so as to remain on time and update the lenders on the progress his business has brought.

    Thanks a lot to all my lenders.
    I will buy a brand new welding machine for my welding and fabrication business. This loan will help me in a great way. I have currently created one more job opportunity in my workshop since i am currently getting large volume of orders from my clients. This will assist in prudent utilization of labor therefore leading to more productivity and business profits. I thank you again all my lenders for making this a reality.
