The Houston Midtown Chapter of The Society for Financial Awareness Presents MONEY MATTERS with Christopher Hensley

Are you going through financial hardship in life? If so, you could be prey to predatory payday loan lenders in the state of Texas.

Even though lawmakers continue to look for ways to regulate payday loan lenders, a legal loophole allows lenders to charge unreasonable rates in the state of Texas. To combat this issue, Zara Mohidin works with Fig Loans to offer products that charge lower rates for people that are struggling financially.

Zara Mohidin is the head of strategy and business development at Fig Loans, where she works with everyday people to help lift them out of debt through efficient payday loans. She also has worked in investment management with the global law firm Linklaters, LLP. She is a graduate of NYU, and has worked with the United Nations.

House of Trump, House of Putin offers the first comprehensive investigation into the decades-long relationship among Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, and the Russian Mafia that ultimately helped win Trump the White House.

Our guest today was Craig Unger. Craig Unger is the New York Times bestselling author of House of Trump, House of Putin; House of Bush, House of Saud, and other books. The former editor in chief of Boston Magazine, he has written for New York Magazine, The New Yorker, Esquire, among many other publications, and has been a longtime contributing editor of Vanity Fair magazine. A graduate of Harvard University, he has appeared as an analyst on dozens of broadcast outlets. He lives in New York City.

It is a chilling story that begins in the 1970s, when Trump made his first splash in the booming, money-drenched world of New York real estate, and ends with Trump's inauguration as president of the United States. That moment was the culmination of Vladimir Putin's long mission to undermine Western democracy, a mission that he and his hand-selected group of oligarchs and Mafia kingpins had ensnared Trump in, starting more than 20 years ago with the massive bailout of a string of sensational Trump hotel and casino failures in Atlantic City. This book confirms the most incredible American paranoias about Russian malevolence.
