I am prepared to agree to the usual terms for a 5-month repayment window (20% per month) and a 1.5% interest rate. I apologize for the last-minute nature of my request and for the inconvenience I am sure this would cause you. I respectfully ask for your patience and understanding. I am available to meet with you to discuss this request in person anytime today or before tomorrow afternoon. Thank you very much for your time and understanding.
