Need for Capital

Sun Loan Company and Renewalfinancial.com Agenda

Sun Loan® plays an important role in providing low-cost capital to consumers who are credit-challenged and who are either denied access to mainstream banking services or are charged exorbitant fees by payday lenders. Although there is clear justification for the rates charged based on no collateral requirement, installment payments, credit checks and other important features, Sun Loan’s partnerships with elected and appointed officials, faith and community-based organizations, as well as consumer advocates educate consumers and provide financial resources where needed so they can eventually overcome the extra fees. This company is clearly different from fringe financial service organizations that charge high interest rates and significant collateral. Sun Loan Company® provides direct and ancillary educational benefits to consumers through its partnerships with Renewalfinancial.com.
