    The loan was not enough for the two dryers so I would like to reduce the instalment amount so that I can use the money to top up to buy another dryer

    Due to the harmattan a few customers were coming to dry their hair so business is now slow so I want to reduce the installment amount. I promise to increase the amount as soon as business improves. Thank you
