YOUR LOAN IS AN EXPENSIVE FORM OF BORROWING. YOU CAN SAVE FINANCE CHARGES BY PAYING OFF YOUR LOAN EARLY EITHER IN PART OR IN FULL. YOUR LOAN IS DESIGNED TO ASSIST YOU IN MEETING YOUR SHORT-TERM CASH NEEDS. IT IS NOT A SOLUTION FOR LONGER TERM FINANCIAL PROBLEMS. YOU MAY BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ADDITIONAL FEES AND INTEREST MAY ACCRUE IF YOU CHOOSE TO ROLL OVER OR REFINANCE YOUR LOAN. CREDIT COUNSELING SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE IN YOUR COMMUNITY FOR CONSUMERS EXPERIENCING FINANCIAL PROBLEMS.
YOUR PROMISE TO PAY. You promise to pay to the order of Lender or any assignee of this Agreement from the date of this agreement the principal sum of $100.00 plus interest (and any applicable fees) on the unpaid principal balance of the loan at the rate of X% per Installment Period (“the Contract Rate”) until the amount you owe under this Agreement is repaid in full (the “Loan”). You promise to pay this amount in installments in the amounts and on the dates set forth above (“Payment Due Date”) in the Payment Schedule section of the Federal Truth in Lending Disclosure above. The term “Installment Period” means the time period set forth in the Payment Schedule above when each installment payment on your Loan is due. You agree to make your payments using the method or methods you selected in your Disbursement and Payment Choice Authorization.
ASSIGNMENT. This Loan Agreement may not be assigned by You. We may assign or transfer this Loan Agreement and our related rights and obligations without notice to You and Your consent is not required if We make such an assignment or transfer.
PAYMENTS. You are required to make the payments for each Installment Period on or before the payment due dates in Your payment schedule (“Payment Due Dates”). If You would like to repay Your loan according to a payment plan other than as set forth herein, You must contact a customer service representative no later than three (3) days prior to Your next scheduled Payment Due Date to make those payment schedule modifications if you would like them in effect for the next Payment Due Date. You will make Your payments on or before every Payment Due Date until You have paid the entire principal and accrued finance charge(s) and any other charges as described in this Agreement. If on the final scheduled Payment Due Date (“Maturity Date”), You still owe amounts under this Agreement, You will pay those amounts in full on that date.
PAYMENT BY CHECK. If You elect to pay by check, then you agree to repay all amounts due pursuant to this Agreement via check. All mailed payments must reach Us by 4:00 pm Mountain Time on or before the Payment Due Date. If You provide a check as a payment, You authorize Us either to use information from Your check to make a one-time electronic fund transfer from Your account or to process the payment as a check transaction. When We use information from Your check to make an electronic funds transfer, funds may be withdrawn from your account as soon as the same day that We receive Your payment, and You will not receive Your check back from Your financial institution.
WHEN YOU BEGIN PAYING FINANCE CHARGE(S). You begin to accrue finance charge(s) for the loan on the Disbursement Date. The first Installment Period on the loan begins on the Disbursement Date and ends on the first Payment Due Date. Thereafter, each Installment Period begins on the first date following the Payment Due Date and ends on the next Payment Due Date. You will be charged finance charge(s) on the entire Installment Period beginning on the first day of the Installment Period. In calculating Your payments, We have assumed You will make each payment on the day and in the amount due as outlined within Your payment schedule. If any payment is made before the Payment Due Date, the finance charge(s) are due for the entire Installment Period and no refund shall be made for the finance charge(s) charged for the Installment Period. Time is of the essence, which means that there are no grace periods for when payments must be made.
PREPAYMENT. In addition to Your right to cancel your loan by repaying us the entire Amount Financed, You may prepay your loan after the cancellation period but before the payment is due (“Due Date”). If You do, We will give you a credit against your interest charges. The credit will equal the Finance Charge shown above times a fraction. The fraction is the number of days you pay before the Due Date divided by the number of days from the Funding Date through the Due Date. To arrange to prepay your loan in whole or in part, you must go online at www.zocaloans.com or call us at 800-220-0460 to alert us of your intention to make a prepayment and then follow our instructions. Partial prepayments will not change the amount or due date of your remaining payments until this Agreement is paid in full.
DISBURSEMENT. If your Loan is approved, we will disburse your loan proceeds within 1 business day. A Business Day is a regular work day and does not include Saturday, Sunday or holidays. You authorize us to use commercially reasonable efforts to initiate a credit entry by depositing the proceeds of your Loan into the bank account or onto the payment instrument that you first authorized in your Disbursement and Payment Choice Authorization. The date that your loan proceeds are deposited to Your Bank Account or onto your payment instrument is the “Disbursement Date”. Unavoidable delays such as bank holidays, the processing schedule of your individual bank, inadvertent processing errors, “acts of God” or “acts of terror” may extend the time for the deposit.
EXPEDITED FUNDING SERVICE. If you want to receive your loan proceeds at least one business day sooner than through a regularly schedule disbursement, we offer you an Expedited Funds Service. If you choose this Expedited Funding Service, your loan proceeds deposited into Your Bank Account on the same business day as your Loan is approved (if before 1:00 p.m. Mountain time) or the next business day if after that time.
For example, if your loan was approved at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, your loan proceeds would likely be deposited into Your Bank Account on Monday. However, if you use the Expedited Funding Service, then your loan proceeds would be disbursed to you on Friday.
Note that the timing of when your bank actually makes these funds available to you is entirely controlled by your bank and not us. The additional cost that we have to pay to provide this Expedited Funding Service Fee. This Expedited Funding Service Fee will be included in your first payment. If you want to use Expedited Funding Service, type your name below.
ALL SUMS DUE. If you fail to make your payments on time we can require you to pay your unpaid balance in full. We can also require you to pay your unpaid balance in full if you break any promise you made in this Agreement or if any statement that you made in your application or in connection with your loan is untrue or becomes untrue. This means that you must pay us all principal, finance charges and other amounts that you owe us.
REFUSED INSTRUMENT CHARGE. If your payment method is stopped, denied or otherwise dishonored, then you agree to pay us a fee of $30. Your refused instrument may also cause your payment to be late which could result in you also having to pay a late charge.
CONSUMER REPORTS. You authorize us to obtain consumer reports about you now or in the future as long as you owe us money under this Agreement. We may report information about your performance under this Agreement to credit reporting agencies. Late payments, missed payments and defaults may be reported. This may negatively impact your ability to receive loans or advances from other companies or to write checks.
CREDIT DISPUTES; IDENTITY THEFT. If you believe that any information about your loan that we have furnished to a consumer reporting agency is inaccurate, or if you believe that you have been the victim of identity theft in connection with any loan made by us, write to us at PO Box 1147 Mission, SD 57555. In your letter (i) provide your name and loan number, (ii) identify the specific information that is being disputed, (iii) explain the basis for the dispute and (iv) provide any supporting documentation you have that substantiates the basis of the dispute.

default, we may, without notice or demand, declare the entire amount then unpaid immediately due and payable.
