FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How long do we pay the debt service?  The interest free loan that we received is a thirty (30) year loan.  The loan term is until 2038.  The annual amount due increases each year.  There is an annual audit review done each year.  Therefore, the debt service amount due each month will eventually start increasing to meet this need.
