Payday Loan

A short-term loan expected to be repaid before the borrower's next pay day. Frequently, the borrower collateralizes a payday loan by presenting a postdated check for the amount of the loan (plus interest). The lender simply deposits the check on the agreed-upon date. Interest rates on payday loans are notoriously high.
