Payday Loans: The Facts
Alabama Asset Building Coalition
January, 2014

Payday loans can provide quick cash to cover emergencies, but many folks do not like them. They say that the payback period is too short and the fees charged are too high. They believe that payday loans are not fair because they trap borrowers in debt. As a result, some folks want to pass a law that would cut down the high fees charged for these loans.

The information in this booklet will explain payday loans, and tell you about the dangers of getting one. It also will give you ideas about how to get cash without a payday loan.

Illinois Financial Institutions
December, 2013

View maps

These maps were created by Howard University's Center on Race and Wealth for the Illinois Asset Building Group (IABG). The maps provide an accessible way for coalition members, partners, and key stakeholders to learn about financial access (or in-access) in their communities. They will support initiatives to safely bank the unbanked, and campaigns that advocate for predatory lending reform and expanded access to safe small dollar loans. The data in these maps also will be used, along with other data sets, in district specific fact sheets intended to educate decision-makers about financial access challenges facing households in their district.
