Get Rid of High-Cost Title Loans

Do you owe up to $2,000 to a title loan company?
Take Charge America and MariSol Federal Credit Union can help!

Auto title loans are short-term loans secured by the borrower’s vehicle. Consumers typically pay up to 200% APR on these loans, causing a huge financial hardship. In response to this problem, Take Charge America has teamed up with MariSol Federal Credit Union to offer Maricopa County residents an alternative to these high-interest title loans so they can break free of the high-cost lending cycle and regain financial independence.

It’s all part of our Lend a Hand loan program.

Here’s how it works:

  • If you have a title loan, Take Charge America will provide you with a free credit counseling session to help you develop a budget and action plan to pay off your debt.
  • MariSol Federal Credit Union will pay off your existing title loan (up to $2,000) and provide you with an alternative lower-interest loan that you can pay off within 12-18 months.
  • What’s more, you will establish a savings account with MariSol Federal Credit Union to help you build an emergency savings and plan for a secure financial future.
  • Best of all, there are no fees to participate in this program!
