Cash America is the nation's largest pawn lending company with over 700 pawnshops nationwide, and almost as many cash advance stores and check-cashing kiosks. With a pawn loan, customers give us an item of collateral for cash. Or a customer can obtain a cash advance to tide them over until their next payday. Customers know they can get the cash they need when they need it from Cash America.
While we didn't create the pawn product, we are responsible for many innovations in our industry.
Cash America was one of the first companies to raise capital to build a chain of pawnshops. We were early adopters of a formal training system for our employees and one of the first to network our stores. We also created a centralized jewelry processing center, sophisticated practices to verify gold content and confirm the quality of diamonds, and a proprietary pricing system to help us set consistent guidelines for lending, buying and selling merchandise. But, most importantly, we created a culture based on positive Core Values. And that culture is demonstrated in the products and services we provide to our customers every day.
Cash America stores offer a variety of services, including pawn loans, cash advance/short-term loans, check cashing, prepaid debit cards money orders and money transfers, and the purchase of gold in select locations. In addition, many of our pawnshops offer payday advances, or you can apply for a cash advance/payday advance online through our subsidiary cashnetusa.com. Cash America is an active member of the Community Financial Services Association, the governing body for a financial association that promotes responsible lending. We abide by its best practices.
