Who We Are

Our loans are easy to obtain and we offer flexible payment terms!

Our Story

Illinois lending first opened its doors in 1996 on Wells Street in Chicago, IL. Our goal from day one was to offer customers access to affordable, short-term installment loans. In addition to our six locations in Illinois, we offer online loans. We continue to exceed customer expectations by providing installment loans that are substantially cheaper and more flexible than most payday loans. 

We’re proud of the prompt, friendly service we have provided the people of Illinois for 22 years and counting. Every day we continue to meet the borrowing needs of our customers by offering same-day approval, lower-cost installment loans. We want to be your first choice when you need fast cash and are looking for a convenient, affordable alternative to expensive payday loans. We want you to know that Illinois Lending will always be there for you, and will always be “The Better Way to Borrow.”

Why Choose an Illinois Lending Loan
over a Payday Loan?

We offer loans that can actually help, not bury you in debt and put on added stress. We offer true installment loans with lower rates than your typical payday loan. Did you know that the average interest rate on a payday loan is over 400%!? How are you supposed to get ahead with a rate that high holding you back? With Illinois Lending, you can easily get a same-day loan approval! Our loans are easy to obtain and offer flexible payment terms. Don’t get caught taking out a payday loan - compare our rates, you’ll be glad you did.
