    Hello Rahab, more than 3000 $ for your project is very risky for you, Zidisha and all lenders. Think about that and plan a new and smaller project. Best regards Ronald

      Hello Rahab,
      It is my understanding that the syystem does not allow for this. What you can do, is when the rather paying $25.12, which is due on 27 Sept....Pay $100.48, so the next four payments have already been made. If you feel this will be too much for you to pay in one week, reschedule it so that you will be able to make all the payments before they are due.
      I also understand that you will have to make the first payment, before you are able to adjust the schedule.
      Good luck.
