Quote of the Day | April 12, 2020

“I’ve always said we bank the unbankable… If something came up, say they had a doctor’s bill or they broke an arm and had to go to the emergency room, they couldn’t go to their bank and say, ‘Hey, look, I get paid on the first, but I need 250 bucks right now because this emergency came up.’ Banks don’t do those type of loans.”

-Phillip Church, president of the Oklahoma Pawnbrokers Association [Tulsa World]
