This isn’t a Title Loan – We do not charge high interest rates! We provide affordable personal loans because we are here to help you!

Title Loans are instant short-term cash advances against someone’s car/title as collateral. They can help in emergencies but can leave borrowers indebted for years. They target people without credit cards — often those with the worst credit — and charge borrowers much higher interest rates. Annualized rates are about 390 percent, according to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB.)

THE UPI LOAN FUND 

Our Purpose – “Our purpose can best be described as “impact investing”. We are capable of providing affordable, low cost loan products at varying interest rates that focus on the financial needs of unbanked and under-banked, low/moderate- income families and communities; particularly the marginalized consisting of African Americans and people of color.

Our Services –  We serve the needs of communities and municipalities by giving individuals, families, veterans and businesses an affordable loan option/alternative coupled with first class cloud-based and in-class behavioral financial wellness seminars/training.

The UPI Loan Fund was created to provide a viable alternative to predatory lenders who charge fees and interest rates at 400% and higher. These predators (e.g. Payday and Title Loans) although legal in many states, primarily operate in poorer communities, especially communities of color, preying on people during their time of financial need.
