Middle Income Earners Most Reliant On Payday Loans
New site statistics released from a recently launched instant loans website has revealed that middle earners are the most reliant on payday loans and are more likely to take them out than lower earners, despite what many people might be led to believe.
Site statistics released from a newly launched instant loans website have revealed which Britons are most reliant on the immediacy of payday loans, with middle earners coming in above those within the lower earning bracket.
With payday loans growing in popularity amongst people in the UK, the site aimed to discover who were the most likely to take one out. Site statistics on InstantLoansDirect.com were analysed to find out.
www.InstantLoansDirect.com looked at site statistics since launching, as when applying for a short-term loan through the site, users are required to enter certain details; such as their monthly take-home figures, employment status and job role. The site statistics revealed that it is in fact middle earners that are the most likely to take out payday loans.
InstantLoansDirect.com first of all identified the salary brackets of low, middle and high income earners, defined as follows; £0 - 24 K (lower income), £25- 50K (middle income), £51 K + (higher income).
Of all the people taking out a payday loan through the site to date, more than half, 57%, were middle income earners, whilst a quarter, 24%, fell into the lower income salary bracket. The remaining 19% of people who had taken out a loan through InstantLoansDirect.com, the minority, were higher earners.
Of all the people taking out loans via InstantLoansDirect.com, 94% were ‘employed full time’ and 2% were ‘students’. The average amount borrowed via the site is ‘£250’, which is nearer the higher end of the £300 limit.
InstantLoansDirect.com is partnered with and powered by H and T pawnbrokers, a responsible lender that has been established for more than 100 years. The site offers an interest rate that is around 90% lower than the likes of Wonga and aims to change the face of expensive payday loans.
Giles Coutts, founder of InstantLoansDirect.com, commented on the site statistics:
“Most people assume that the demand for instant loans is directed mainly from lower earners or the unemployed, which couldn’t really be further from the truth. Our site statistics have shown that, in fact, it is the middle and higher earners of Britain that need them the most.
We were keen to gather some information with regards to the demand for instant loans and looking at our site statistics really was quite revealing. Soon we’ll be looking at which areas in the UK have taken out a payday loan the most, to see if there’s a correlation between regions and the requirements for instant cash.
