That is undoubtedly homework so how about you make a start and then we can help if you get stuck. From the wording it sounds like you are intended to use a While or Do While loop.

So what parts don't you understand? Declaring a Decimal variable, using a loop, displaying a message on screen or decrementing a variable? Can you do any or all of those things in isolation? Have you read the help topics I linked to for the While and Do loops? If you're learning on your own then you must have read about how to do these things in the book that contains that exercise. You must be able to make some sort of start.

// write & run this in console application

Dim i As Integer = 5
Do
Console.WriteLine("WOW")
i = i - 1
If (i = 0) Then
Exit Do
End If
Loop
Console.ReadLine()

VB.NET:
for i as integer =0 to 5
Console.WriteLine("WOW")
next
Console.ReadLine()
VB.NET:
Dim i AsInteger = 5
while i>=0
Console.WriteLine("WOW")
i-=1
end while
Console.ReadLine()
