Pawn Shops

I recently discovered that there are a number of state owned pawnshops here in Thailand. The government recently loosened restrictions on the pawnshops in order to try to help lesser income people to help stimulate the economy.

Were the shops expensive or were only certain people allowed to purchase from them?

I think it was more on the lines that a lot of people used the pawnshops to borrow money, and they were raising the amount of money they would be willing to lend to people.
