APR, the Annual Percentage Rate is the effective rate of interest charged on your loan.

14. Why does one need to renew a loan?
Unforeseeable circumstances can make it difficult for borrowers to pay back their loans promptly. In most cases, lenders will extend the loan for an additional interest rate. You'll avoid any extra fees and payments this way. Not all states permit renewals.

ACH stands for Automatic Clearing House and is a method of electronically depositing or withdrawing funds from an account. When you provide a check as payment on your installment loan application, you authorize us to process the payment as a check transaction. When the lender presents an ACH request to your bank, it will send the specified amount of loan fees and/or principal to the lender which was outlined in your loan agreement. If the payment is returned for reason of insufficient funds, the lender can and will present the ACH Authorization to your bank again.
