Short-Term or PayD ay Loans
By Stanley T. Crawford

Short-term loans, payday loans, and cash advances, these are often frowned upon by some people. Yet there is a large market for these loans. Most advice concerning these loans is not to obtain them, however the fact remains that thousands of people obtain these loans every month. If they weren’t profitable, places like ACE, Cash America, and other businesses wouldn’t provide these loans.

If they are such a disliked product then someone should step forward and help people who get these loans.

The help cannot be purely to tell these individuals that they should seek credit counseling, but it has to consist of monetary help, as well. Most people who get these loans already know they need financial canceling, but they also know that their immediate situation needs to be addressed. Normally, this requires CASH.

With all that said, if an individual has determined that a short-term loan is the best avenue available, then like anything else one should make the best informed decision for his or her given predicament.

When considering a short-term loan, ask yourself these 7 questions:

1.What amount of money do I need?

2.When can I pay this money back (principal and fee)?

3.What are the repayment terms?

4.Can I meet these repayment terms? (use a calendar, and your budget)

5.Am I pursuing counseling or planning to pursue counseling, so that I don’t have to continue to utilize these short-term loans?

6.If I can’t pay the principal and fee, then can I pay the extension fee? (use a calendar and your budget)

7.Is this loan new or is this my 1st, 2nd, or 5th time borrowing from a short-term loan source?
