    I. A title loan shall be for an original term of no more than one month.

A title loan lender may allow such loan to be renewed no more than 10 additional periods each equal to the original term, provided however, that at each such renewal the borrower shall pay at least 10 percent of the title loan's original principal balance in addition to any finance charge owed, to reduce the principal balance outstanding.
    III. If the borrower cannot pay this principal reduction at any renewal, the title loan lender may either: (a) declare the borrower in default; or (b) allow the loan to be renewed, provided that the lender shall reduce the current principal amount of the loan by 10 percent of the original principal amount for the purposes of calculating interest thereafter.
