Frequently asked questions

What is an Installment Loan?

An installment loan is a loan that is repaid with a fixed number of periodic payments generally due on pay dates. An installment loan gives you the flexibility of paying back your loan over a greater time period than a payday loan. A benefit of an installment loan is that you can prepay your loan in full at any time or make additional payments without penalties.
