NEW YORK - July 2, 2018 - (Newswire.com)
The not-for-profit lending organization, Provident Loan Society of New York, is providing a lending alternative for students who may be short on cash this summer.
As interest rates continue to rise, borrowing money is getting more expensive for anyone in search of a loan. Banks and credit cards are all charging higher rates as the Federal Reserve raises interest rates.
The share of borrowers who are making payments more than 30 days late is also rising, according to Capital Economics.
"Provident Loan Society of New York provides lower interest rates than many credit cards," said Kevin King, CFO for Provident Loan Society. "In addition, our loans don't impact your credit score and we don't look at credit history when deciding who gets a loan. We appraise your collateral to determine a loan amount."
