Extreme Consumer Loan Business Profits?

How to start a consumer loan business

Cash advance and payday loan businesses can offer superior returns for an entrepreneur focused on lending money to the masses.

Sure! We charge what are perceived to be high-interest rates because our customer acquisition costs and our default rates can be SCARY.

What to do? You simply build these metrics into your business plan.

You integrate with state-of-the-art customer acquisition channels, loan management software, and underwriting platforms. 

The interest rates we charge enable us to offer the 60% of USA households living paycheck to paycheck access to money when faced with a sudden financial challenge.

Do you know that 38% of households earning $100,000/annually are living paycheck to paycheck as well? 

In today’s economic environment, credit card companies are charging 29.95% APR. AND THEY HAVE LEVERAGE! Credit card companies report consumer payment history to the three major credit bureaus. We do not!

 Cash advance, payday loan, installment loan and car title loan companies can be profitable. However, it is essential to note that the profitability of a payday loan/consumer loan business will vary depending on many factors, such as:

The amount of competition in the area.

The demographics of the area served.

Are you funding loans via the Internet, a brick-and-mortar or a “blended” model?

Internet-originated consumer personal loan defaults are generally double that of storefront locations.

The efficiency of the business’s operations. Meaning customer acquisition costs, underwriting costs, servicing costs, processing costs, and collections costs…

The overall state of the economy. 

The state the consumer/borrower resides in.

Many states have regulations that limit the interest rates that payday loan businesses can charge, which will impact the business’s profitability.

For example, short-term consumer loan rates for borrowers residing in Florida are $10/$100 loaned. On the other hand, Texas is as much as $30/$100 loaned. California payday loans are $15/$100 loaned.

The ROI is strongly impacted by the types of loan products the Lender offers to the 60%+ of USA adults living paycheck to paycheck.

  • Personal loans
  • Car title loans
  • Installment loans
  • Amortized loans
  • Loans that depend on tips, accelerated ACH deposits
  • BNPL products that depend on merchant fees to earn a profit
  • Other

[A recent study revealed Buy-Now-Pay-Later [BNPL] companies are charging an average 380% APR when all the extra fees, tips, ACH acceleration fess… are computed!]

Achieving a 30% gross on your street money is typical. Many balance sheet lenders earn more. Many inefficient lenders earn less. As they say, “It depends!”

How-to: Installment Loans for the Subprime Demographic

Example Nevada Installment Loans

There is a national trend by regulators to mandate a 36% APR [Annual Percentage Rate] cap throughout the USA.


Many national Lenders have been transitioning to a multitude of financial loan products in an effort to continue to serve subprime borrowers while still achieving superior ROI. Witness Avant, CURO, WRLD, ENVA… You only need to refer to their latest earnings call to comprehend the extent of this transition away from single-payment products. Enova’s progeny is CASHNETUSA.com back in the late ’90s. At the time, they offered singularly payday loans having 400% – 700% APR payday loans. As per their latest Q4 earnings call, these single payment [payday loan] products made up a mere 2% of loan originations. Obviously, they see the writing on the wall.


DO YOU?


Nevada, in addition to approximately 25 other States, has Implemented a state database. This demonstrates a death knell for the single payment product!


Luckily, we Lenders have time to evolve our Loan product offerings AND, more importantly, integrate with Fintech platforms that enable us to reduce headcount, and employ artificial intelligence [AI] to acquire, underwrite, service & collect funds without the aid of human intervention; thus reducing our G & A expenses. [Examples: IOUUmpire.com for 24/7/365 debt negotiation & IWVPro.com for wages & income verification.]


DO YOU WANT TO SCALE YOUR BUSINESS?


Grab a copy of our latest version of “How to Lend Money to the Masses Profitably.” 500+ pages of real-world, how-to start, scale, improve and succeed lending cash to the 50%+ of USA households who are FAST running out of money and cannot access $500 cash in order to solve a sudden financial emergency.
