SB 515 includes three principal reforms California payday loans: it caps the number of payday loans per borrower at four per year; extends the minimum term of a payday loan, so that borrowers will have more time to accumulate the amounts necessary to repay it; and requires all lenders to apply standardized underwriting guidelines to ensure that borrowers have a reasonable ability to repay their loans.
