State License for Leap Credit as a Direct Lender in Wisconsin

Leap Credit is a state-licensed direct lender for short-term installment loans in Wisconsin. Leap Credit follows all applicable laws in Wisconsin. Click below to view our Wisconsin License.

Wisconsin is known as “America’s Dairyland” because it is one of the nation’s leading dairy producers, particularly famous for its cheese. Manufacturing (especially paper products), information technology (IT), cranberries, ginseng, and tourism are also major contributors to the state’s economy.

Making a living in Wisconsin can be a struggle. In fact, 11.8 percent of Wisconsin’s population lives below the poverty line[1]. Although at $56,811, Wisconsin’s annual median income is on par with the median annual income in the United States[2], people in Wisconsin still sometimes find themselves facing a financial shortfall.

In Wisconsin, 25.8% of households are considered Asset Limited Income Constrained Employed (ALICE)[3]. These hardworking families live paycheck to paycheck. One unexpected expense could push them toward poverty. Even people who have a job in Wisconsin that pays more than minimum wage often find themselves living paycheck to paycheck. When the unexpected occurs, you may not require thousands of dollars to make things right–but you may need a little financial influx to restore your financial security and get you back on your feet.

Some of the reasons people bridge their financial gap with Leap Credit include:

  • Medical emergencies
  • Home repairs
  • Car repair
  • Unexpected life events

When you’re facing a financial shortfall, borrowing money shouldn’t involve unnecessary hurdles. At Leap Credit, we pride ourselves on our process: straightforward, simple, and fast.

We provide Wisconsin online installment loans. There’s no compounding interest. You tell us exactly what you need to borrow (between $400-$1,100). We’ll make sure you understand the terms of the loan upfront.

Why is it important to find a licensed lender in Wisconsin?

Finding a licensed lender in Wisconsin is fairly simple. You may find that using a licensed loan officer takes a bit longer, as compared to an unlicensed lender. However, in the long run, you can be assured that a licensed lender in Wisconsin won’t pass along illegally hidden fees and charges. Using a Wisconsin licensed loan officer will save you headaches, frustrations, and—potentially–money.

A licensed loan officer in Wisconsin will also ensure that you borrow within the laws of the state of Wisconsin. An unlicensed lender may work outside of the state laws, leaving you unsure about whether the process is being done legally or illegally. A licensed lender has expert knowledge and can make sure that the loan follows Wisconsin state law, but still meets your needs.

Because each state has its own laws and regulations, it is always recommended that you work with a licensed lender in your specific state.

Leap Credit is a licensed direct lender in Wisconsin. Here’s what that means for you – the borrower:

Choosing the right lender in the state of Wisconsin ensures that all loan terms are compliant with the law. Let Leap Credit handle your loan while you worry about YOU!

What about an unlicensed lender?

While you might be tempted to find an unlicensed lender, we encourage you to take the time to research your options. Working with an unlicensed lender involves substantial risk. It is important to study and read the fine print on these loans. More often than not, an unlicensed lender will tack on a higher interest rate or add on hidden fees down the line.

Because there are many licensed as well as unlicensed loan officers throughout Wisconsin, it can be confusing to try and sort all the available options. Remember that a licensed lender works within the parameters determined by Wisconsin state law on each loan. Although an unlicensed lender may seem appealing because they can tailor a loan to your very specific needs, this incurs greater risk. If you choose to work with an unlicensed loan officer, there may be some fees and charges that you might not otherwise have with a licensed lender.

Taking the time to find a reliable lender that understands your needs and your situation is important. Life is full of uncertainties, whether it be a growing family, home remodel, or emergency repairs (to name a few). Don’t let your financial burden become a life burden as well. At Leap Credit, we will work hard to make sure your loan is handled efficiently, so you can continue to move forward. Don’t get bogged down with hidden fees and surcharges. Our licensed lenders will keep you informed and in control of your finances. We are here for you!

 

Tips for short-term installment loan borrowers in Wisconsin

  • Pay down principal. When discussing your repayment terms with us, ask how you can make payments on your principal loan amount in addition to paying interest. The easiest way to pay off your loan quicker is to add a small amount to your minimum payment. Simply adding to your minimum payment (within your means, of course) will help you to pay off your loan quicker and get you back on track before you know it.
  • Portion your paycheck. Depending on your income, you can set up your installment loan payments accordingly. Work out your payments so that you only need to spend a small amount of your paycheck on your loan payments. Account for any other financial obligations you have, and budget it out. Allow yourself flexibility to afford day-to-day activities and needs.
  • Length of the loan matters. Depending on the need and the loan terms, always take into consideration the length of the loan. If the need arises, consider taking longer to pay back the loan. As you go through our application process, know what you can afford and how quickly you’ll be able to make payments.

Every loan is different, just like every need is different. Finding the right installment loan to fit your needs and your budget is important. Leap Credit Wisconsin Installment loans are designed to be flexible enough for you to pay the loan back quickly, without any hassle.
