Payday Loans in Nevada

Payday loans require their borrowers to provide lenders with access to their paychecks and bank accounts in case repayment cannot happen within the loans’ terms and conditions.

Nevada’s 339 payday lending storefronts make an average of 3,541 loans per store. And though the typical loan amount is relatively small—$350—this adds up to more than $77 million in fees annually across the state.

Nationally, 80% of all payday loans are either rolled over (meaning the borrower pays a fee to have the loan extended for two weeks) or renewed (meaning the borrower immediately takes out a new loan to cover the last one).
