Do you always suffer from receiving late paychecks? Are your house bills, phone bills, credit card payments, and other important expenses starting to pile up, resulting in paying for the penalty charges due to failure to meet its due date?
If you find yourself caught up in these situations, then you should definitely consider pawning your valuable items to meet your short-term cash needs. With 72% of Filipinos who’ve tried to pawn before, there are no reasons not to try it as well.
