The good news for those of us in the payday loan industry continues! Not only are valuations for payday loan stores already rising in conjunction with the payday loan publicly traded companies – check out Enova for example – but the phones are ringing off the hook, investors are looking for opportunities to collaborate with experienced operators, a major content development media company is planning a 6 part small dollar loan financial series, Elizabeth Warren is foaming at the mouth, our Payday Loan Startup Manuals are selling like hot cakes again, entrepreneurs are launching apps of all kinds, funding platforms requiring only a cell phone account for a borrower to receive their loan funds in 60 seconds [just one of MANY startups I’m collaborating with], performing portfolios for sale… and today the Wall Street Journal reported the following commentary by Committee chairman Rep.
