First Cash

First Cash pawn stores make small loans secured by pledged personal property and retail a wide variety of jewelry, electronics, tools and other merchandise. The Company makes money through its pawn stores in which it purchases second-hand goods and provides consumer finance activities. By giving small consumer loans to help customers meet short-term cash needs, First Cash holds jewelry, consumer electronics, tools, sporting goods and musical instruments as collateral. When a consumer defaults on his or her loan, the pawn store then makes significant retail sales.
