Over the past 20 years it has become more and more difficult to borrow a small amount of cash for a short period of time. As a matter of fact banks will have none of it. That is where The Piggy Bank comes in. Raymond McAfee at The Piggy Bank understands that there are moments when you just end up short of cash. At The Piggy Bank we make small short term loans on items of value. Just bring the item(s) in and let Raymond take a look. The Piggy Bank will assess the value to make a loan or a purchase offer. Once an agreement is reached, we'll pay you in cash and send you on your way!
The Pawn Story
A pawnbroker is a individual or business (pawn shop) that offers secured loans to people, with items of persnal property used as collateral. The word pawn is derived from the Latin pignus, for pledge, and the items having been pawned to the broker are themselves called pledge or pawns, or simply the collateral. If any item is pawned for a loan, within a certain contractual period the pawner may redeem it for the amount of the loan plus some agreed upon amount for interest.
