What is the Annual Percentage Rate (APR)?

APR is used to show the total cost of a loan by including the interest rate and all fees. APR represents an accurate cost of borrowing and can be used to compare annual loan costs across different loan options. Since the Economic Justice Fund charges no fees, the APR will always match your low interest rate on the loan, between 6.5% – 11.5%. Therefore, the maximum APR on the Economic Justice Personal Loan is 11.5%. The APR on the Economic Justice Personal Loan is well below what you would pay at traditional banks and most other lenders.
