Interest shall commence with the date hereof and shall continue on the outstanding principal until paid in full or converted.

3.    Pre-Payment. Prepayment of principal, together with accrued interest, may not be made prior to the Maturity Date without the Lender’s consent.  If pre-payment is consented to by the Lender it will be without any prepayment penalties and interest will no longer continue to accrue on any prepaid principal amounts after such pre-payments.
