HISTORY OF PAWNBROKING
Pawn shops originated around 3,000 years ago in Ancient China. It was a way for peasants to get fast money during times of hardship. The pawnbroker would hold the persons valuable items for an agreed amount of time. After the time expired, the person would have to return to pay back the loan with the agreed sum of interest. Pawnbroking also became popular in Greece and Rome which is where the word originated. The word "pawn" we know today came from the Latin word "patinum" meaning "cloth" or "clothing." This was due to the fact that in the early centuries, all people had were their clothes, so borrowing money with their clothing was their only option.
Today, people depend on pawnbroking just as much as any other bank for their financial needs. Pawn shops help customers who find themselves in need for short-term funds and help everyday working families stay afloat.
