    The change in installment is as a result of inability to meet up sales due to the pandemic which affected my business a great deal as am recovering bit by bit.

      Yes I can. I needed an increased credit limit to be able to achieve this. I had earlier on sent a mail to this effect. I will appreciate if my request is given prompt attention .

    My last loan made a huge impact in my business. I was able to make bulk purchases as this gives more interest than retail. It makes business moves faster with good proceeds.

    I have been working so hard after the lockdown relaxation and I have been able to make up for my loan repayment.

    The reason is for change is business is not yet normalized owing to the pandemic.

    Because of lockdown due to pandemic. Business is completely flat

  • Mandy Essien    Apr 11, 2020

    Its really sad that the situation of the covid-19 pandemic won't let us do our business with ease. There is total lockdown in my state. Business is not moving. This is the more reason I am not able to pay my loan as it used to be. Hence this reduce in installment. I pray it gets better soonest.
