This section of the analysis will detail the economic climate, the payday loan industry, the customer profile, and the competition that the business will face as it progresses through its business operations. Currently, the economic market condition in the United States is in recession. This slowdown in the economy has also greatly impacted real estate sales, which has halted to historical lows. Many economists expect that this recession will continue until mid-2010, at which point the economy will begin a prolonged recovery period. There are several pieces of legislation that are being considered on both the federal and state level that will sufficiently limit the interest rates charged to low income borrowers for emergency credit services. The payday, title, and signature loan industry generates interest rates of 100% to 600% (on an annual rate) to its customers. These businesses are able to charge these rates of interest as many states do not have upper limits on the interest rates charged on small loans.

• Payday Loan Company, Inc. will have an annual revenue growth rate of 13% per year.
• The Owner will acquire $125,000 of debt funds to develop the business.
• The loan will have a 10 year term with a 9% interest rate.
7.2 Sensitivity Analysis
The businesses’ revenues are not sensitive to the overall change in the general economic market. Payday and signature loans are primarily used as emergency lending vehicles, and as such, the people obtaining these loans are in a serious financial situation. As such, as the economy recesses the business may actually notice a marked increase in the business generated by the Company. However, severe turns in economic stability may increase the defaults experienced by the business. Management would compensate this higher risk by increasing the fees associated with each loan.
