Payday Loans One PAger.png

Who’s paying for payday loans?

Payday lenders thrive by targeting low-income borrowers that cannot pay back the loans and end up trapped in a cycle of high-cost debt. These loans are sold as a solution to a financial shortfall, but the average borrower takes out 10 loans in a year and is in debt for five months. In fact, 82 percent of borrowers borrow another loan within 30 days of paying off the first.
