    • Loan amount. Loans cannot total to more than 20% of your gross income.

    Here's how much a short term loan might cost in Laredo

    Lucas had an emergency medical bill pop up that he couldn’t pay outright, and that he couldn’t set up payment plans for. A small mistake in his past meant that his credit wasn’t perfect, so he couldn’t take out a personal loan. In order to pay the bill off in time, Lucas decided to take out a short term loan.

    He applied online for a $700 loan, which would be due in two weeks when he was paid next. The lender made it clear that there would be a fee of $178.35 before Lucas agreed to the loan.

    On his next payday the total amount due was debited from his checking account. Because the payment was made automatically, Lucas had to budget for the extra expense.

    If his payment was late, there would be a fee of $35, and if he had insufficient funds when the lender debited his account, he would have received a non-sufficient funds (NSF) fee of $30.
