New Mexico Loves Loan Sharks, Public Servants Not So Much

Steve Fischmann

When I first met Louis he was too deep in debt to afford a car.  He got most of his meals from local food banks.  He survived on a net monthly income of $170 after making payments on small loans from six different storefront lenders. 

His loans ranged from 80% to 240% interest.  Every few months, after he paid down some of the debt, the lenders would contact Louis urging him borrow more.  Cash strapped, he would refinance his loans - for an additional fee- and the debt would never go away.  He was paying $7,200 annual interest and fees on debt that hovered at around $4,000.
