Q) I have 4 storefront payday loans and 3 internet payday loans. I'm planning to tackle this pdl problem and I don't know where to start. Can Montana debt consolidation help?
Ans: Montana debt consolidation programs can help you consolidate payday loans. You need to first ask your lender for an Extended Payment Plan (EPP).
