Farm Loans,
I am prepared to make loans on improved farms for a term of ten
years, with interest payable annually. The borrower can have the
privilege of making a payment of as much as one-fifth of the principal
at any time each year, thereby stopping the interest on the amount
paid. By this method the borrower is enabled to pay off the full
amount of the loan in five years. The privilege to pay one-fifth each
year is optional with the borrower. He can, if he chooses, keep the
loan for the full time. No extra charge for this privilege, which ena-
bles the farmer to be out of debt in five years, if he chooses. Should
the borrower conclude to pay only one-tenth of his loan each year, he
would then be out of debt at the end of ten years. It enables the
farmer to save the expenses of making a new loan every three or five
years. If you want a loan investigate my plan.
