Dear Madam,

You should refer to the terms and conditions of the lease Agreement with the Company. The very fact that your uncle is ready to pay the remaining installments on the first sample machine implies that the product is in demand and has a market. Since your uncle is in business, he will stock one sample machine in his hardware shop and book purchase orders from walk-in customers for that machine taking part advance payment. The total value of orders booked by your uncle on that machine and forwarded to the Company for supply may be to the tune of Rs. 50,000/- which the Company may be asking you to purchase and stock. If your uncle is keen to promote the Company's business, he should buy out the first sample machine by payment of the remaining installments in one go, and continue business relations with the Company on an ongoing basis.
