    Hi Lenders,

    I haven't previously lent to Moses but I see he repaid his loan early, which is great.

    However, I notice that both of his invitees are VERY far behind with repayments and it's doubtful if the loans will be repaid. Though he invited them he hasn't made many posts here about their failure to repay.

    Best regards,
    Colm
