    Hi everybody, I am Mr Donald Coch,Am From Europe but currently living in Australia now.Am married at the moment with three kids and i was struck in a financial situation and i needed to refinance my business and also pay for my daughter medical bills. I tried seeking loans from various loan firms both private and corporate but never with success,and most banks declined my credit. But as God would have it, i was introduced to a private loan lender by a friend and i got a loan sum of 150,000USD and today am a business owner and my kids are doing well at the moment. So dear,if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan with low interest rate of 3% and better repayment plans and schedule,please contact Mr Warren Buffett he doesn't know that am doing this but am so happy now and i decided to let people know more about him, he offers all kinds of loans to both individuals and companies and also i want God to bless him more. You can contact his company through this email.warrenbuffettloanfirm01@gmail.com
