Hi.

Thank you for your question. My name is Jo and I will try to help with this.

Yes, you do. There was a contract which required her to repay this. If she has been repaying then you will not have any problem with proving this and anyway a court is not likely to accept that she wasn't supposed to make repayments given that she is an adult.

You can sue her here

and you will win.

Can I clarify anything for you?
