Payday Loan Application

Flag of the State of Iowa Let’s face it—life can throw you some wicked curve balls sometimes, and you might find yourself in need of some quick cash here in the Hawkeye State. That’s not always such an easy thing to find when you have bad credit. Whether you live near Dyersville’s Field of Dreams, or in Cherokee, or Shenandoah—anywhere in that great rolling country between the Mississippi and Missouri rivers known as Iowa—a payday loan can be just the thing to get you back in the game when the bases are loaded and it’s the bottom of the ninth.

Your car got towed off the street in Fort Dodge, and now you’re on the phone to every tow yard in town trying to track it down. But you’re also wondering how you’re going to pay to get it out of the clink in time to get to work in Bloomfield next week. Where are you going to get that kind of cash, and pronto?

Or maybe you’re actually sitting in your car in downtown Cedar Rapids, ready to drive away, but your transmission thinks otherwise. Where can you turn for the cash to get it fixed? A payday loan is what you need to get back on the road.

Then there are those times when it seems like the rains of misfortune will never end. Sometimes literally, like when an ocean of rain pours onto your leaking roof in Atlantic (and you’ve run out of buckets to catch it in). Or when a leaky pipe in your basement in Ottumwa led to a mold problem, and it’s not just the ick factor that’s bugging you, but the cost of getting it properly cleaned. What can you do now, besides hold your nose and write the check?

But if you don’t want to be moving in with your in-laws in their “cozy” two-bedroom, one-bath house in Hampton, you better find a way to get this paid for. You’ve got a regular job so a payday loan might be just the thing.

And there goes the nice police officer, driving away after giving you a big fat traffic ticket, courtesy of the city of Des Moines. The truth is you’ve already got a good-sized pile of these sitting unpaid at home. You better pay them soon or your license is getting suspended—and then how will you visit your new romance out in Waterloo?
