Over the forecast period, the Global Payday Loans Market is expected to grow significantly. The growing awareness of Payday Loans among the younger generation, as well as payday lenders' aggressive adoption of the most advanced technologies, are expected to drive market growth over the forecast period. Payday Loans, also known as check advance loans or cash advance loans, are a type of short-term borrowing in which payday lenders provide immediate short-term credit at extremely high interest rates. Payday Loans are typically based on a portion of the customer's next paycheck, and interest rates are frequently based on the customer's income. A payday loan allows borrowers to write a post-dated check for their payday salary to the payday lender and receive a portion of that payday amount in cash right away. Obtaining a payday loan is simple because the eligibility requirements for Payday Loans are very low.
