What is a payday loan?
A payday loan or cash advance is a short-term, small-dollar loan, often used to cover unexpected expenses or to bridge a temporary gap between paydays. Payday loans are used to cover short-term financial situations — they are not a long-term financial solution.
Helium Loans is a Payday Alternative Lender that offer's longer term loans with 10 times lower interest rates.

Does a term loan help my credit score?
Successful payments are reported to the credit bureau which will improve your credit score.
What happens if I can't repay my loan?
We like to work with clients and can reduce your payments and extend the loan if needed to help keep the loan in good standing. If you don't respond to our calls or letters we will exercise our legal rights by sending your loan to a collection agency and/or will take directly you to court. Unpaid balances remain on your credit report for 7 years and the loan will continue to collect interest. In our experience judges grant us the cost of court fees and lawyer expenses which will be added to your balance.
