It is the 20th of the month and you have a sudden big ticket expense coming up. Or it is a sudden hospitalization for a medical emergency. It could be an examination or course fee that needs to be paid immediately. Payday is 10 days away. Don’t know what to do? This may sound familiar to you as most of us may face the same issue when sudden expenses catch you off guard. In such a situation, don’t you wish you could get your salary in advance?
