What credit will I receive for these repayments? A--When repayment on a loan has been made, the amount of interest due on the date of repayment is first credited. Any portion of the repayment above the amount of interest due has been credited to the principal of the loan. Q--I borrowed $500 on my certificate in March, 1931.
