How a Native American tribe can save money on payday loans
The Navajo Nation’s payday loan program is being targeted by payday lenders, who are threatening to sue over the payments.
“We’re trying to figure out how to get to a point where payday loans can work,” said Shawn Mabe, president of the Nation of the Great Sioux Tribe.
The tribe’s payday loans are available to tribal members, but most of the loans are offered through a program called “Tribal Power” run by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The program has an enrollment limit of 100,000 tribal members and a maximum loan amount of $5,000, but borrowers are allowed to borrow up to $25,000.
That means the tribe has more than 1 million payday loans available to them.
Mabe said the tribe could end up having to pay $6,000 a month for a loan it can’t afford.
“Tribe members have been saying, ‘This is what we have to live on.
This is what our family can live on,'” Mabe told FoxNews.com.
“So we’ve been asking for more.
And now we’re at a point of having to ask for more.”
According to a report by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the Tribe has $16 billion in outstanding payday loans.
But, according to Mabe and other tribal leaders, the loan holders are not honoring the payments, and the loans have become “a financial burden for the tribe.”
Mabe says the tribe is being hit hard by the growing number of payday loans because of its history as a major lender of payday loan debt.
He said the money the tribe takes in through its tribal programs goes into the tribal bank account to pay for the cost of tribal services and programs.
“It’s a major part of our budget,” he said.
The tribes tribal power program allows members to borrow from a small pool of borrowers, with the total amount of the loan ranging from $500 to $1,000 per borrower. “
What we need is a way to get the money back to our people and to keep the tribe solvent,” Mabe added.

The tribal power loan program, as the name implies, allows members of the Navajo Nation to borrow money from lenders who meet certain criteria.
These criteria are set by the tribal government.
If the loan is approved, the lender must provide proof of repayment, such as paying back the loan or paying a monthly fee.
In addition, members of tribal communities are eligible to receive a tribal credit or debit card.
The Navajo government says the program has helped the tribe pay for everything from medical care and school supplies to health care, and to fund tribal programs.
However, many of the tribes credit card holders don’t actually repay the loan and have taken out loans with payday lenders.
Mabbie, the tribal power member, said the tribal credit card program also is not helping the tribe with the $17.5 million it owes the U,S.
“The program is going to cost the tribe hundreds of thousands of dollars per month,” he explained.
“This is not sustainable.
It’s not sustainable for the tribal people.”
The Tribe of the Big Horn was not the only tribe to face financial hardship due to payday loans in the past.
In 2011, the tribe in Oklahoma had a $2.5 billion payday loan default.
The Nation of Ojibwe was also hit with a $5.8 million payday loan delinquency.
In 2014, the Nation in South Dakota had a total of $16.3 million in outstanding credit card delinquency, which the government attributed to the nation’s high unemployment rate.
Nation in Oklahoma, however, had no money in the bank, and was in the process of refinancing the $10,000 loan to pay off $8,000 of student loan debt it owed.
Nation member Mabe is also the president of an advocacy group called the Great Plains Credit Union.
Mabe said he has personally met with a number of tribal members who have used payday loans to make ends meet.
He also believes the tribe can find an alternative source of funding for its tribal services programs.
Mabora said the Nation has been trying to find alternative ways to pay its bills through tribal credit cards for years.
“They are still paying the bills.
And they are struggling to pay the bills,” he told Fox News.
“I think the best thing that we can do is to help them.”
Mabes work as a bank teller, but Mabe also said he is working on developing a tribal power credit card that would allow the Nation to make payments to its members, not to payday lenders who are offering them.
“One of the problems is that payday lenders are charging a higher interest rate than the tribal banks,” Mabee said.
The Native American Nation is the only American Indian tribe with a tribal government and it is one of
