Breaking the cycle of payday loan debt

Loans due in full on your next payday. No installments. No exceptions.

That’s a big reason why the average payday loan borrower in Iowa takes out 12 or more loans each year. And it’s why we’ve heard from folks who were stuck in the same payday loan debt for years, never being able to catch up.

To break this cycle of debt, CCI Action members and other allies have crafted a bill in the Iowa legislature to allow a borrower to pay off their loan over 6 pay periods with no additional fees (known as an extended payback period).

Extended payback periods would prevent much of the repeat borrowing every two weeks that the payday loan industry uses to reap immense profits at the expense of our pocketbooks.
