    What laws do lenders in Colorado Springs need to follow?

    All lenders in Colorado Springs are required to abide by Colorado law. This means they can lend up to $500 for terms of six months or more. Although short-term lending is legal, APR is capped at 45%, meaning the amount you’ll have to pay is lower than in other states. Unfortunately, this also means that lenders are less likely to offer short-term loans, so you’ll have to shop around more and compare rates to make sure you’re getting the best deal possible.

    How much you'll have to pay for a short-term loan

    Unlike many other states, Colorado caps the annual percentage rate (APR) at 45%. It might seem high, but compared to the fact that other payday loans have APRs in the hundreds, it’s relatively cheap to borrow a short-term loan in Colorado. For residents of Colorado Springs, this means you won’t be paying much extra for a small loan.

    In addition, you won’t have to repay it all in one go. If you find the right lender, you may be able to get a contract that states you have months, not weeks, to pay off your debt. More time means you might have to pay more, but you also won’t be forced to pay back hundreds of dollars by your next payday.

    It’s all about reading your contract and finding out what works for you.

    Abby can't afford her vet bill

    Abby’s cat was injured and needed immediate treatment, but the pet insurance Abby had didn’t cover the entire cost. She had already depleted her savings the month before, and due to some missed payments in the past, Abby’s credit wasn’t great. Since she didn’t qualify for a personal loan, she opted for a short-term loan instead.

    She applied for a loan of $200 at a storefront. The lender charged a $7.50 fee per $100 borrowed for every month the loan was outstanding. Her payments were broken up over a six-month period and were automatically debited from Abby’s account. All she had to worry about was making sure she had enough that she wouldn’t be assessed a non-sufficient funds fee.

    Abby decided to pay the entire loan amount off by the end of the second month so she wouldn’t keep being charged the $7.50 fee. Now her cat is healthy and she doesn’t have to worry about the extra debt she had to take on to pay for her vet bill.
