A consumer gets a £5000 loan, but, after fees gets only £4800. As the due date of payment approaches, the borrower is made to pay £580 in interest. In many cases, the borrowers are unable to pay this full amount; so lenders often let them pay only the interest of £80. Again, after a few weeks the entire £960 becomes due. The vicious cycle repeats, and borrowers literally get buried neck deep debt. It may emerge that the borrower can only barely manage his living expenses.
