EDITOR’S CHOICE
Free access to the best insights and insights – curated by our editors.

Transportation Alliance Bank (TAB Bank) in Ogden, Utah, has a partnership with a fintech called EasyPay Finance that appears to advance the bank’s financial inclusion goal – it lends to people with low FICO scores who couldn’t get credit elsewhere – but the relationship has drawn criticism from animal and consumer rights activists.

Part of EasyPay’s business is providing pet loans to stores that buy their dogs from abusive puppy mills, where animals are kept in tiny cages, abused, malnourished and not given proper care. appropriate medical treatment, according to animal rights groups. The loans also have interest rates as high as 188.99%, according to the National Consumer Law Center.

TAB Bank initially denied that its work with EasyPay Finance of Carlsbad, Calif. directly or indirectly funded puppy mills – and indeed it can be very difficult for lenders to find out about such relationships.

“We have assurances from retailers that they verify and track the sources of their pets,” Curt Queyrouze, CEO of $1.2 billion asset TAB Bank, said when he was first contacted by American Banker for this story.

Queyrouze, who has a rescue dog at home, reassessed that statement after the National Consumer Law Center provided evidence of a loan that funded the purchase of a pet raised in a puppy mill. The NCLC and the Humane Society called out EasyPay Finance and TAB Bank in February for providing loans to puppy mills.

Queyrouze spoke this week with people from the Humane Society about the issue.

“At this point, we are committed to continuing our research to assess the pet funding vertical and ensure that we are not unknowingly contributing to the support of bad actors,” Queyrouze said. “We are committed to taking the appropriate measures to eliminate this risk for pets and future owners.”

The case highlights the risks banks take when they partner with fintechs. It is possible that the fintech partner provides high-interest payday loans that trigger complaints from consumers and regulators. Fintechs could also be too aggressive in detecting fraud and mistakenly close accounts of innocent customers without the support of customer service to remedy the situation. There is the risk that a fintech is disabled by fraud.

Add to that list the danger of inadvertently making loans to a puppy mill.

Some states have banned pet stores from selling dogs, knowing that most come from puppy mills.

“Of course, none of the pet stores selling puppies will say they sell puppies from factories,” said John Goodwin, senior director of the Humane Society. “The game pet stores are playing is a game of semantics, redefining what a puppy mill is to describe any breeder other than the ones they use.”

Large kennels that supply pet stores tend to view dogs as production units rather than pets, he said.

“Commercial USDA-licensed dog-breeding kennels typically have dozens or even hundreds of dogs, and stores will say these facilities don’t meet the definition of a puppy mill,” a said Goodwin. “A USDA licensed dog breeder can keep a dog in a crate just six inches longer than its body for its entire life. They can, and do, raise mothers on each heat cycle until their bodies are exhausted, in order to maximize production.

The Humane Society investigated pet stores in New York, California, Virginia, Georgia, and Illinois and found that they all used high-volume breeding operations.

The NCLC shared with American Banker a loan contract for an EasyPay-TAB Bank loan that was made through the Hicksville, New York-based Shake A Paw pet store chain. The loan facilitated the purchase of a puppy for $3,864.09 with a down payment of $1,364.09 and a loan of $2,500 with an annual percentage rate of 151.98%.

In December, New York Attorney General Letitia James sued Shake A Paw for selling hundreds of sick or injured puppies that often died within days for $2,500 to $8,000 per dog. (In New York, it costs about $400 to adopt a healthy dog ​​from a rescue organization.)

The dogs were sick because they came from large-scale puppy mills, including Blue Ribbon Puppies in Indiana, the lawsuit said. For the shared loan agreement with American Banker, the Humane Society traced the purchase to Blue Ribbon Puppies.

“Puppies raised in puppy mills are kept in facilities that have little or no concern for animal welfare,” the New York attorney general’s lawsuit said. “Puppies are subject to improper housing, shelter, staffing, nutrition, socialization, sanitation, exercise, veterinary care and/or husbandry.”

Shake A Paw owners do not disclose the sources of their puppies, a practice known as “puppy laundering,” he said.

The attorney general was alerted to Shake A Paw by 99 consumer complaints the office had received about the chain store since 2016.

“We do our best to ensure that the animal sellers we do business with and their suppliers treat their animals humanely,” EasyPay CEO Mary Jones said in a statement. “Through funding through the EasyPay platform, we have helped bring love and joy to many pet buyers and their new puppies over the past year. We have not received any complaints regarding health or the condition of these puppies.

Goodwin acknowledged that lenders might overlook the animal abuse underlying their loans.

“Third-party finance companies are just that, third parties,” he said. “They have no say in where the puppies come from and are unlikely to be the ones an aggrieved customer goes to after their pup falls ill or dies. The good news is that companies like EasyPay can take a stand against puppy mills by no longer funding pet purchases. Such a decision would have a negligible effect on their income, while sparing many mother dogs a life spent in a puppy mill cage.

Jones acknowledged EasyPay’s high credit costs.

“But high rates are the only way for banks to extend credit to people in difficulty,” Jones said in his statement. “We believe customers are in the best position to decide whether a financed purchase is in their best interest.”

Goodwin would like to see finance companies end pet loans.

“The only way for these finance companies to avoid supporting puppy mills is to stop offering pet loans,” he said.

Broncos The partners Reviews and Ratings

Broncos The partners and its affiliate websites are not accredited by the BBB and have been the subject of numerous complaints and negative press under various names.

MEC Distribution LLC

At one point, Broncos The partners and its affiliate website operating as MEC Distribution, LLC. The Better Business Bureau issued its first alert on this company in February 2018:

In February 2018, BBB staff visited Fargo ND addresses provided by MEC Distribution and found that all locations were vacant and building management explained that although rent was paid by MEC Distribution, the spaces in office were not used. MEC Distribution LLC has provided BBB with a mailing address for complaint handling in Bloomfield Township Michigan. BBB’s mail to this address was returned as “undeliverable as addressed – undeliverable”. Currently, BBB does not have a physical location for this business.

BBB has confirmed with the North Dakota Department of Financial Institutions that Lafayette Funding is not licensed in North Dakota as a debt settlement company. Additionally, BBB contacted building management at the Lafayette Funding Claims address in Bismarck, ND, and learned that Lafayette is not located at that address. BBB advises extreme caution when dealing with this entity.

HaFinancing of the Knights BBB Reviews

You won’t find a BBB file on Financing of the Knights because the complaints haven’t started coming in yet. However, we have reviewed some complaints from its affiliate websites:

Cathy M. – 1 star review

They changed their name to Salvation Funding. After seeing this note, I understand why. I don’t know how they got my information, but they need to be stopped.

Terry W. – 1 star review

Beware of bait and switch shippers. The terms are “extremely different” from those advertised! It’s a waste of time.

My goal is to help others realize that it’s a waste of time! Pebblestone Financial’s advertisement is definitely misleading in my opinion. After my conversation with Fred, his response was, “we can definitely help you…I’ll call you tomorrow morning with the details…have a pen and paper ready to write down the numbers.” The sender includes in fine print… This review is not guaranteed if you do not meet the selected criteria.

It also further states: “This review is based on information in your credit file indicating that you meet certain criteria.” In my case, I’m not behind on payments, and neither will I be. I am current on all outstanding debts and my credit history demonstrates it. When Fred called the next morning… his terms were totally ridiculous and, in my opinion, “predatory loans”. When I asked Fred…are those the terms of Pebblestone’s offer, he said yes. I replied, I’m not interested in those terms and he hung up the phone immediately with no further conversation.

The reason I responded to Pebblestone Financial’s offer was to consolidate and simplify with one payment and take advantage of the low pre-approved average rate of 3.67%. While I currently pay between 10.9% and 12.9% to credit card companies…this offer was attractive. The sender stated in BIG BOLD PRINT: You have been pre-approved for a debt consolidation loan with a rate as low as 3.67%. The pre-approved loan amount was actually $11,500 more than my total debt consolidation.

In summary… it’s definitely a “Bait and Switch” scheme in my opinion. I checked BBB feedback before responding to this offer and have not seen any negative feedback. Now I see other very similar answers with the same “Bait and Switch” experience. Hope this helps others avoid wasting time finding out about these unethical practices of Pebblestone Financial.

The Rent-A-Tribe Program

In recent years, hiding behind the protection of a Native American tribe has been made popular by internet payday lenders. In July 2018 Charles Hallinan, “the payday loan godfather”, was sentenced to 14 years in prison for providing payday loans through the Mowachaht/Muchalaht First Nation in British Columbia. In January 2018, Scott Tucker was sentenced to more than 16 years in prison for running an illegal $3.5 billion payday loan business while operating under “sovereign immunity” from the Modoc tribe of the United States. Oklahoma and the Santee Sioux Tribe of Nebraska.

If your credit score is 550, you can only qualify for a personal loan. However, it is almost impossible to obtain large loans with low credit scores. This means you need to look for alternative financial solutions or improve your credit score.

In this article, I will explain various things you need to know about getting a loan with a 550 credit score. Let’s cut to the chase.

What does a credit score of 550 mean?

Generally, anything below 576 is considered bad credit. So a score of 550 does you a disservice. On the contrary, chances are you won’t get good loans with reasonable interest rates and fees.

Bad credit scores can be caused by many factors such as past loan defaults, delinquent accounts, or bankruptcy. All of this gradually leads to a bad credit history, which leads most lenders to stop you from getting a loan. If they offer you the loan, they will charge you huge fees and massive interest rates over a short period of time.

However, all is not lost as you can still get financial aid. As for unsecured and secured loansthe lender can only offer you a loan if they’re sure you’ll pay back every penny, and that’s extremely unlikely if you have a credit score of 550.

How can I get a payday loan with a credit score of 550?

The fact that most lenders prefer a credit score of 600 and above makes it instantly difficult for you to get a loan with a credit score as low as 550. However, there is hope for you because there is lending platforms such as Gday loans with lenders who will grant you a loan regardless of your credit score.

  • Online lenders: A few online lenders don’t do massive credit checks, and you can apply to see if they’ll offer you the loan.
  • Credit unions: Unlike traditional banks, credit unions are different because they are flexible when dealing with borrowers with bad credit. Depending on where you live, you can take the challenge and be a credit union member and hopefully get the financial help you need.
  • Community banks: Like credit unions, community banks require you to be a member or regular user to get a loan agreement. In this case, you’ll need to find out about their loan options, and if you find a community bank employee you know, they might be able to help you get the best deal.
  • Payday Loans: Payday lenders don’t need your credit history to offer you a loan. For example, Gday Loans offers guaranteed approval loans for bad credit applications. However, these loans attract good fees and high interest rates.
  • High Interest Installment Loans: Some lenders offer lines of credit and installments. However, they charge huge interest rates and fees that prevent you from paying on time.
  • Securities lending: Title loans are a great way to get loans because you get an amount based on the value of your car. Once you pay, you get your vehicle. The best part is that you can still drive your vehicle even after getting the loan. The only problem comes when you don’t repay the loan and the lender confiscates your vehicle.

How to Improve Your Credit Score 550

Raising your credit score from 550 takes stamina, composure, and action. It also takes perseverance, as you will have to wait for some time before your credit score increases.

Let’s look at what you can do to improve your credit score from 550:

  • Pay your bills on time: Paying off your bills on time is by far the best thing you can do to improve your credit score. Note that once a bill is due in 30 days and you don’t repay, most creditors will report you to the credit bureaus for late payment. That’s why it’s essential to always pay all your credit bills on time. Once it’s placed in your credit history, make sure it stays there for the next seven years.
  • Lower revolving account balances: If you use a revolving line of credit or a credit card, paying off all of your balances will reduce your credit usage and ultimately improve your credit score. The best part is that it’s fast and accurate so you don’t have to wait long to see significant improvement.
  • Open new accounts only if necessary: If you have a limited number of credit cards, taking advantage of a loan or secured credit card will be essential to boost your credit score. You will just need to settle the repayments on time on your new account so that a positive report is integrated into your credit score. However, do not take out any credit card loans if you doubt your ability to repay on time.

Credit cards are also crucial in saving you insurance money, in addition to securing loans. Skipping bail and renting a house becomes easy because it proves that you are credible and can be trusted to pay your rent on time.

Conclusion

Nevertheless, when you cannot get loans, you will need to improve your credit score. Few things hurt as much as being denied a loan while you’re in a financial crisis simply because you cannot meet the required credit score. Luckily, this article has shown you that you can get some loans even with a low credit score.

But if improving your credit score takes longer and you urgently need money, try it. Gday Loanswhich will connect you to best bad credit lenders in australia.

An installment loan allows the borrower to withdraw a certain amount of money over time. The loan is then repaid in installments. Typically, installment loans come with fixed payment amounts – they don’t vary throughout the loan. However, loan interest rates may vary depending on the lender and the terms of the loan.

Examples of Tribal Installment Loans

Tribal installment loans for bad credit

Bad credit loans are great short-term cash solutions for people facing emergency expenses, but who have a very bad credit history. Lending platforms that offer these services are often not concerned with the borrower’s credit history. Instead, they only focus on whether or not they can repay their loans on time.

Tribal installment loans for bad credit

Credit score plays an important role in determining whether one is qualified for a loan. Borrowers with good credit ratings are often eligible for more loans than those with poor credit ratings, i.e. riskier applicants.

Alternatively, if you have a bad credit score, you can turn to Heart Paydays for a quick tribal installment loan for bad credit. The loan broker will connect you with a perfect loan company to solve your financial emergency needs here.

Tribal installment loans with a co-signer

A co-signer is someone who signs a loan agreement with another person. The co-signer agrees to take on the legal obligation to repay the loan if the applicant does not repay the loan on time. Additionally, the co-signer can help the applicant obtain loans on reasonable terms to reduce the lender’s risk.

Tribal Installment Loans No Teletrack

Teletrack was incorporated into the lending industry in 1989, making it a relative newcomer to the world of business-to-business financial systems. Its main function is to follow the personal credit files of creditors in search of quick information on potential customers.

Teletrack is a modern approach used to check borrower’s credit history. It gives lenders details of all credit records, such as credit card applications or mortgages that an applicant has ever incurred.

A no-teletrack tribal loan, on the other hand, ensures your credit privacy while improving your chances of qualifying for a tribal loan.

Eligibility for Tribal Installment Loans

There are many requirements to be eligible for instant payday loans. Although these requirements are designed to be used as a guide only, they may vary from one payday lender to another. Therefore, borrowers should review each lender’s policies when applying for a payday loan. While some creditors may assess your source of income, most are only concerned with the reliability of your income.

Clients must meet the following requirements to apply with online brokers such as Heartpaydays:

  • Must be at least 18 years old
  • Have an active email
  • Must have a current bank account

Tribal Installment Loan Costs

  • APR: Depending on your state’s lending legislatures and the amount you want to borrow, the APR can vary between 10% and 30% of your loan principal. Typically, they charge $15 per $100.

This equates to an annual percentage rate of almost 400% for a two-week loan. Tribal installment loans are often applied as alternatives to payday loans, where APRs range from 200% to 400%. Heart Paydays Loans offer installment loans with APRs between 5.99% and 35.99%.

  • Late fee: Creditors charge different penalty rates on late repayments depending on state lending laws.

If you are considering applying for a tribal installment loanknow that you will face challenges, especially if you cannot repay the loan immediately. If you find yourself in such a state, you can try various loan options such as loan refinancing or loan discharge in bankruptcy.

Although no law protects defaulting borrowers from prosecution, it is unusual to see borrowers unable to repay their loans end up in jail. Most of the jail sentences are due to these borrowers refusing to appear before the judges or failing to comply with court directives and not due to non-repayment of the loan.

How to apply for an installment loan at Heart Paydays

Step 1: Decide how much you need

Whatever loan you are looking for, estimating the amount you need is perhaps the key concern when deciding on a loan. Applicants are qualified to apply for loans of up to $5,000 from Heart Paydays. Installment loans vary depending on the direct lenders you are matched with from their database.

Step 2: Complete the application

Applicants enjoy a smooth application process when applying for loans online. As an applicant, you need to complete a brief online form and select the loan provider that offers you the best terms. This will instantly initiate the approval process by your potential lender.

Step 3: Wait for feedback

After completing the application, the lender will send you a response confirming whether your application has been accepted or not. This process typically takes less than ten minutes for Heart Paydays loan applicants.

Step 4: Receive your loan

If the direct lenders confirm that you qualify for their loan, they will deposit the money into your bank account. However, if your application is rejected, you will be referred to other lenders who can help you.

Get your installment loan today

The main challenge of opting for a tribal installment loan is that you will have to approach the lenders separately. Another big concern is that direct lenders have the privilege of setting loan terms and application procedures.

Fortunately, your fees can be significantly reduced with loan brokerage sites such as Heart Paydays. Also, they will save you the lengthy application process of direct lenders.

Although the ability to save money sometimes depends on factors beyond your control, we spoke to several experts who offered a manual on how people with healthy savings accounts do it.

Set a monthly budget and stick to it

While budgeting might seem like the obvious answer, that’s because it works, according to David Frederick, director of client success and guidance at First bank. According to Frederick, an effective budget is your best tracking tool for knowing how much an individual or household is bringing in, how much they’re spending, and how much they can save.

“Expenses are the variable that people can most easily control,” he said.

Use advanced savings tools

If the only tool you use to save is a savings account, you risk missing out on earning potential, Frederick warned.

“While it is okay to put money in a savings account, there are often better accounts for long-term savings purposes. People concerned about retirement should save in a 401(k) or IRA. People concerned about health care costs should consider saving in a Health Savings Account (HSA). People saving for a child’s education should consider opening a 529 savings account.”

Avoid and mitigate debt

One of the most effective ways to increase savings is to reduce debt, Frederick suggested. Although some debts are difficult to avoid, from mortgages to student loans, he urged people to pay off those debts as quickly and deliberately as possible.

“Also, harmful debts like credit card balances and payday loans should be avoided whenever possible,” Frederick said.

Reduce lifestyle inflation

As we make more money, we tend to spend more money, a concept called “lifestyle inflation,” said Jeff Mains, CEO of Champion Leadership Group LLC, which helps entrepreneurs scale their business. It eats away at all the money we could spend on savings.

So, you should make it your goal to live below your means, says Amanda Howerton, Certified Financial Planner at RKCapital.com.

“People with the healthiest savings accounts are most often the ones who are truly living below their means,” she said. She acknowledged: “It’s so much easier said than done in the age of social media and targeted marketing, so the ‘wish list’ items you casually browse online appear daily. in advertisements.” However, it will be the difference between several thousand dollars over time.

Automate deposits

According to Brad Biren, Esq, LL.M., a tax law expert known as “RefundDrTax.”

“Calculate what would be a reasonable amount to allocate to savings and automatically transfer that amount into savings. This avoids forgetting and deciding not to.

Set savings deadlines

Additionally, Biren said, “There’s a certain magic that happens when you challenge a person to achieve a goal.” In other words, savings goals are more likely to get you to your amount faster.

“Assuming the goal is achievable, but a little stretched, it will probably become a new habit, as long as the discomfort of the race to save is not too high. For example, stretching or tightening the belt, savers realized they could live happily with less, don’t stop them, keep it up.

He recommends incremental savings goals rather than larger goals for more consistent success and a chance to celebrate accomplishments.

Organize short and long term financial goals

It can be more effective to have multiple levels of goals, said Amanda Sullivan, research analyst at CreditDonkey. “People who have a healthy savings account have it for a purpose. Whether it’s a mortgage, car loan, or retirement fund, the money in their banks is used for short-term or long-term financial purposes.

Most likely, they will do this using the bucket savings strategy, where a certain amount of money is set aside in pursuit of a certain goal.

Goals provide a concrete reason to save, said consumer credit expert Tanya Peterson, vice president of branding at Liberty Financial Network, a digital personal finance company. “When you work on things that are important to you, whether it’s saving money, exercising, breaking a bad habit or whatever, you dramatically increase the chances of that happening.”

All opinions included were submitted by Albuquerque residents.

Payday loans are high interest, short term and based solely on an individual’s salary. Apparently, these are small loans made to bridge a time gap or deal with an emergency, like an unexpected car repair. Payday lenders say these loans are needed to help disadvantaged people in dire financial straits. But one Pew Charitable Trusts study found that only 16% of payday loan borrowers used the money for unexpected expenses. A whopping 69% of borrowers used their payday loans for recurring expenses like bills, rent, and food.

According to Seven Pillars Institute for Global Finance and Ethics, payday loans are “a toxic mix of high operational costs and low returns.” A lender has access to your checking account on the day your paycheck is deposited and takes the entire lump sum payment. This is before you can pay other bills or withdraw money. That could leave you shorthanded again, precipitating another high-interest payday loan and another cut to your next paycheck.

Payday lenders claim to serve a segment of the population that does not have access to conventional bank loans or credit cards. Opponents of these practices say it creates financial slavery.

An intermediate solution, as proposed by Seven Pillars, could be to administer payday loans at reasonable rates through a government agency such as the US Post Office.

What do you think?

Yes, USPS!

When I started my “working” years in 1958, the post office had a bank. My first savings account was there. It was almost unanimous among the elders of our community that debt was avoided like the plague. Times have changed, but the essence of life has not changed. The post office should provide basic financial services in every post office. We also had decent wages required by law, with affordable housing, food and clothing available. Hospitals were run by city and county governments and churches, so medical services were affordable. We have degenerated and deteriorated considerably. We need less Wall Street and more New Deal to have a civilized country.

Yes, USPS!

Postal banking is a great way to start revitalizing underserved areas of this country. Post offices are located in many areas avoided by banks and retail outlets. They provide an existing infrastructure that would be impossible to replicate and an opportunity to start rebuilding the inner city and rural economies. Services should include checking and savings accounts; credit and debit cards; loans and internet access. They could partner with credit unions to provide financial services.

No, USPS!

As if that matters considering the lending lobby. We have many credit unions that can help those who need short-term loans. Please keep the USPO out of trouble; they will simply write off bad debts at our expense. Credit unions can help with advice; if they rate the loans at reasonable risk (not 36%), they should be able to make money and pay the loan officers. I don’t know what regulations need to be changed, but personal service with genuine care for people in need of money is important.

USPS is not a bank!

I am responding to your February 4, 2022 post regarding Payday Payout and Seven Pillars’ “middle-of-the-road” solution for the US Post Office to administer payday loans. First of all, I’m a fan of our local post office and the people who deliver our mail and provide the current services to move mail and packages from point A to point B – I have all the respect in the world for them! However, this famous phrase comes to mind from Pillars’ comments, “I’m from the federal government and I’m here to help. President Ronald Reagan called the phrase “the nine most terrifying words in the English language”. A clear statement that government is not always the solution and should probably be considered the last resort when all others fail. The last place the USPS needs to be is in the financial services industry. The United States Postal System (USPS) lost $6.9 billion in fiscal year 2021 and $7.6 billion in 2020 – USPS losses would only get worse as it tries to administer financial services products. When I visit the post office, the workers are often overstaffed, there are long queues, and it’s always a process that I’ve come to accept to endure when I go there. . The burden of providing and/or administering financial services and all the regulations associated with disclosures and the like would be overwhelming for an already overburdened staff. Furthermore, according to a publication known as Government Executive and an article by Eric Katz dated January 14and 2022, the USPS in a 4 post office pilot program in the Washington D.C. area, has provided financial services to only 6 people since September 2021 selling gift cards and reported earning 35, $70 during this period. The financial services industry is clearly not a place where the USPS should be and having the USPS to provide financial services is not the answer and is certainly not a “middle-of-the-road” solution! (This email is from a bank president.)

Yes, period

You asked if we should “administer payday loans at reasonable rates through a government agency like the US Post Office”. –
Yes.

Finance 1.0

I think personal finance should be taught in college and beyond.

The consumer world we live in today leads some people to deal with bad credit. If you belong to this category of people, you probably need a bad debt consolidation loan. A bad credit consolidation loan can offer you a financial loan to combine all your credit cards with payday loans and high cost or high interest loans.

In short, debt consolidation loans for bad credit can help you consolidate all your loans into one, saving you time while reducing your fees and interest. In other words, this type of loan is completely stress-free. There are, of course, other benefits of debt consolidation, which will be our topic today, and which we will explore in more detail below. Let’s go.

Top Debt Consolidation Benefits Worth Trying

As mentioned above, debt consolidation is stress-free and time-saving, but there are other benefits to consider, such as:

1. Improve your credit score

When you pay off all of your debts with a debt consolidation loan, they will all be listed as “paid” on your credit card report, which can dramatically improve your credit score in the long run. A bad credit debt consolidation loan gives you the ability to control your high-cost finances by combining your loans into one simple example. Here’s how you can improve your credit score with such a loan:

  • Less fees, less interest, less late fees;
  • Negotiation with creditors to reduce repayments;
  • Refinancing;
  • Reduce interest rates by consolidating all debts into one loan.

2. Control your debt

Once you get overwhelmed with debts, you can start missing your monthly payments, resulting in a bad credit score. If your debt gets out of hand, you’ll just need more and more money to pay it off, but with such a bad credit score, you won’t be able to easily access personal finance from your traditional bank. This is precisely where a bad debt consolidation loan comes in, giving you a chance to regain full control of your finances.

3. Lower interest rates

If you find yourself in a situation where you have to pay several debts at once, chances are that at least some of them are from your credit card. Credit cards always have a higher interest rate than other available loans, and those rates tend to get even higher when you fail to make a payment on time. Therefore, a credit card consolidation loan can reduce that high interest on your debt, giving you the option of paying off the loan at a much lower rate.

SANTA FE — It may seem like déjà vu at the Roundhouse, but a bill dealing with how New Mexico limits interest rates on storefront loans is on the way again.

A year after a similar measure died in a standoff between House and Senate members, a new proposal lowering the annual cap on interest rates on small loans — from 175% to 36% — has passed Saturday by its first House committee.

“It’s truly a financial epidemic,” said Rep. Susan Herrera, D-Embudo, who said more than 20 percent of residents have taken out such loans in about half of New Mexico’s counties.

She also said out-of-state companies have moved into New Mexico to take advantage of low-income residents who need quick access to cash.

However, just like last year, critics of the legislation argued that lowering the state cap on interest-rate loans could put businesses out of business and leave their employees unemployed.

They have argued in the past that such a policy change would push borrowers to use internet lenders, many of which are based in other countries and cannot be regulated.

Danielle Fagre Arlowe of the American Financial Services Association, a group based in Washington, DC, said the bill would make it harder for those with bad credit scores to get loans.

“Low-income residents will likely find themselves in credit deserts if (this bill) passes,” she told members of the House Consumer Affairs and Public Affairs Committee.

But the committee ultimately voted 3-2 to approve the measure, with Democrats voting in favor and Republicans voting against.

This year’s legislation, House Bill 132, is sponsored by a bipartisan group of five lawmakers, including House Speaker Brian Egolf, D-Santa Fe. It would lower the state’s interest rate cap on loans showcase, but would also increase the maximum amount of these loans from $5,000 to $10,000.

In its original form, the bill also included a $180,000 credit for financial education efforts in New Mexico schools, but that was removed from the legislation Saturday at Herrera’s request.

Under current state law, proponents of the bill said storefront loan companies currently target the state’s Native American population and low-income areas.

Additionally, a December survey of Latinos in New Mexico found that 19% of adults had taken out a storefront loan during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“People say it helps – it doesn’t help,” said Leonard Gorman, executive director of the Navajo Nation Human Rights Commission, who described current interest rates on many small loans. as “harmful” to those who find it difficult to repay them.

New Mexico has a long history of regulating the lending industry.

A previous 36% cap on loan interest rates was abolished by the Legislature in the 1980s amid high inflation, according to research by Santa Fe-based Think New Mexico, which has is pushing for the lower rate cap to be reinstated.

After years of Roundhouse debate, lawmakers passed a 2017 bill that established the current 175% interest rate cap on small loans and banned so-called payday loans with terms of less than 120 days.

But critics have insisted that the 175% cap can leave low-income New Mexicans stuck in “debt traps,” while pointing out that the US armed forces implemented an annual rate limit in 36% percentage for loans obtained by active duty military personnel.

The Roundhouse debate has caught the attention of many national businesses who have hired lobbyists to represent their interests.

During last year’s legislative session, a credit industry lobbyist said the industry employs about 1,300 people across New Mexico.

Additionally, small loan companies made $140,000 in campaign contributions to New Mexico candidates and political committees during the 2020 election cycle, according to a recent report by New Mexico Ethics Watch.

The bill to cap interest rates on loans is now before the House Judiciary Committee with less than three weeks remaining in this year’s 30-day legislative session.
