What is an employee’s obligation to pay back a loan to their employer after they have left their job?

We were given a loan of $10,000 by a former employer and told we could pay what we could when we could. After being fired, we still paid what we could when we could. Months later, we get a Warrant in Debt wanting to take us to civil court asking for the $10,000 along with 6 % interest. Can we win this?
