Proceeds from the senior pooled components and the Hotel Martha Washington loan provide the sole source of cash flow for the pooled certificates and the non-pooled subordinate loan components provide cash flow to a loan-specific class of certificates.

All of the loans pay only interest for their entire terms, with the principal due upon maturity.
