Business Model:

Security Finance Corporation offers relatively high-interest-rate personal installment loans and then collects on those loans. The loans vary in amount and terms based on the state of operation and the type of license obtained within that state. 

Security Finance also offers loan refinancing and renewals. Loan renewals are separate loans initially applied to pay off the original loan and any excess is paid out to the borrower with the renewal loan still needing to be paid back.  

The South Carolina-based company was founded in 1955 by Jesse L. Bridges. It is also known as Security Finance Corporation of Spartanburg. It is also known as Maverick Finance; and also known as Security Finance of [state name].
