QuickQuid, the largest payday lender in the UK, has revealed its closure. American homeowners Enova said regulatory uncertainty was the main reason for their decision. While the UK payday loan market has benefited the most vulnerable consumers for far too long, a question mark hangs over the UK credit industry. revealed that 10.5 million Britons were in the worst financial situation in their history, with 53% of them reporting having a weekly disposable income of less than £ 0.
