Pa. payday loans alternative saved 2 million in 07
HARRISBURG, Pa. (2/26/08)--Credit Union Better Choice loans saved Pennsylvania residents about $2 million in 2007, the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association announced. Since the program’s launch in October 2006, roughly 64 credit unions have agreed to offer the loans. Of the credit unions, 50 made 5,706 loans, totaling $2.7 million in volume (Life is a Highway Feb. 25). Pennsylvania consumers saved 80 cents in loan fees for every dollar borrowed through the program. Borrowers also placed a total of $273,432 into savings accounts. The association recently released first-year results from the program, which was developed in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Treasury Department.
