6. Prepayment of the loan
The Borrower shall be entitled to repay the Loan Amount in part or in full at an earlier date than the last day of the loan period in accordance with clause 7.3. of the User Terms by giving prior notice to the Lender of at least three working days.
7.1. The Borrower shall pay interest on the Loan Amount to the Lender.
7.2. The interest rate payable on the Loan Amount shall be the interest rate referred to in the Principal Loan Terms of the Loan Contract expressed as a percentage rate per annum.

Such higher interest rate shall be appropriately documented as the Borrower and Lender see fit.

8. Repayment schedule and interest payment schedule
8.1. The repayment schedule or interest payment schedule applicable to a Loan Amount shall be drawn up and sent to the Lender and Borrower at the same time as the transfer of the Loan Amount to the Borrower and in accordance with the procedure described in the User Terms. Such repayment schedule and interest payment schedule shall be drawn up subject to the following principles:
8.1.1. if under the Principal Loan Terms the repayments under the repayments schedule are described as “annuity payments”, repayments of the Loan Amount and the interest payable in respect of the loan period are divided into periodic repayment instalments such that the borrower must make a payment of an equal amount after the expiry of each relevant period, as detailed in the repayments schedule;
8.1.2. if under the Principal Loan Terms the repayments under the repayment schedule are described as a “principal amount in equal instalments", the repayments of the Loan Amount are divided, as specified in the Principal Loan Terms, into periodic repayment instalments of equal amounts to which interest payable in respect of the period preceding that repayment instalment (up to and including such date of repayment);
8.1.3. if under the Principal Loan Terms the Loan Amount is to be repaid by way of a single payment at the end of the loan period, the interest payable in respect of the whole loan period is divided into periodic payments of equal amounts as specified in the Principal Loan Terms;
8.1.4. notwithstanding the above, any payment to be made pursuant to the repayment schedule or interest payment schedule applicable to a Loan Amount may be required to be made on a different date to that specified where reasonable, such as where it is necessary for the purposes of the Borrower being able to make the relevant payments in the event that, for example, the date of repayment specified falls on a non-business day or national holiday.
8.2. The repayment schedule and/or interest payment schedule applicable to the relevant Loan Amount and sent to the Lender and the Borrower may change, among other things, as a result of amendments to the Loan Contract. In the event that an amended repayment schedule and/or interest payment schedule is sent to the Borrower, such amended repayment schedule and/or interest payment schedule shall replace the previous schedule sent to the Borrower.
9. Default interest
9.1. In the event of a delay in the performance of a financial obligation by the Borrower, the Borrower shall pay default interest on the amount equal to any such outstanding obligation. Default interest is to be calculated from the moment the financial obligation becomes due until the date of fulfilment of such obligation, unless otherwise stated in the User Terms or the Loan Terms.
9.2. The rate of default interest shall be the interest rate referred to in the Principal Loan Terms of the Loan Contract to which fifteen per cent (15%) per annum is to be added.
For example: if the interest rate under the Principal Loan Terms is 10% per annum, the default interest under the Loan Contract shall be at a daily rate of 25% per annum, commencing on the date the relevant financial obligation became due up to and including the date of fulfilment of that obligation.
10. Other payments and fees related to the Loan Contract
10.1. The Borrower shall, in a timely and otherwise due manner, pay any and all sums owed by it including all losses, fees, costs and duties the payment and/or compensation of which is the Borrower’s obligation according to the User Terms.

Among other things, the Borrower may not:
11.1.1. make payments to its direct or indirect owners (including shareholders) (“owners”), members of its management board or supervisory council (“members of the governing body”) or any persons connected with the Borrower, the members of the Borrower’s governing body or owners, or any other persons related to the Borrower, members of the Borrower’s governing body or owners, by way of distributions or fees or by way of payments made in discharge of debt obligations or other payments (with the above not restricting the making of payments by the Borrower of fees to members of the governing body, salaries or other ordinary employment related payments in the ordinary course of its everyday economic activities provided that the relevant payments are of a reasonable amount and made with a view to discharging its legal obligations on arm’s length terms or on terms which are more favourable to the Borrower than the arm’s length terms);

11.2. Where the loan to which the Principal Loan Terms relate is a secured loan, the Borrower must refrain from transactions and activities that may materially reduce the value or scope of the security or otherwise prejudice the enforcement of the security.
11.3. The Borrower must adhere to the business plan, activity plan and budget made available to the Lender and to which the Loan Contract relates except in such cases where a deviation shall not, in the opinion of the Lender, prejudice the interests of the Lender.
11.4. The Borrower undertakes to keep its assets (including any real property provided to the Lender by way of security) and activities insured against any relevant risks to the extent as is usual for persons carrying on similar activities or similar projects, and shall deliver to the Lender copies of the relevant insurance policies at the Lender’s request. In particular, the Borrower undertakes to insure (as a minimum) any real property against:
11.4.1. fire, flood, explosion, earthquake and storm risk;

12.1.3. of any other circumstances or events concerning the Borrower promptly upon becoming aware of the same (including, but not limited to, the Borrower’s assets, the assets subject to loan security, the provider of the loan security or its assets), with regard to which a Lender would have, with regard to purpose of the Loan Contract, a reasonably recognisable interest (including any relevant circumstances and events concerning the project to which the loan relates and circumstances and events concerning the real property in relation to that project (including of events described in clause 14.4.6 or 11.1.2 of these Loan Terms)).
