I propose that it was a dyslexic typo. 48 months is a standard time frame of 4 years. 84 months is 7 years, an odd amount. Thus, I suspect that you would "only" pay $23,355.84 for a $5,000.00 loan. I wonder if, should you pay it off early, it would a slightly smaller amount? Btw, it certainly is a better deal than was given to them upon the initial encounter with Europeans; they don't trade with beads anymore. For which I give kudos to them. However, all the money in the world (probably) can`t stop the slow erosion of culture, or assimilation into the society that swarms around.

Think I've seen their commercials - isn`t this the lender that says (to paraphrase) "sure its expensive, but we`re giving you a loan without any collateral." If only the mob thought of that slogan and paid their taxes...
