Break the Debt Cycle With a Payday Relief Loan
If you have a high-interest loan from a payday lender, title lender, or even a pawn shop — contact Freedom First
or visit a branch
to find out if you qualify for an affordable loan with regular monthly payments, subject to loan approval.
Don't Fall Deeper into Debt with Hidden Interest Fees
Installment or payday loans can be deceptively expensive. Customers are pushed by predatory lenders to renew their loans over and over again. The practice of payday lending is slowly being regulated out of existence, but it's unclear where people with modest means will find short-term loans instead. That's why we developed our safe, affordable Payday Relief Loans.
(Select Payday Relief Loan in the drop down menu of the Personal Loan application form.)
Every 90 seconds, $67,000 in new payday loan debt is issued in the USA. Roughly 2.5 million American households use payday loans each year. It has grown to a $40+ billion industry.*
