The number of people in the region considering taking out a payday loan has doubled in the last six months.
New figures show that while the number of people across the country considering a short term loan fell from seven to six percent, since June last year, the number in Yorkshire and the Humber rose from three to six per cent.
But figures for the region have fallen over all from a peak of twelve per cent in April 2012.
Unemployment figures show that Yorkshire and the Humber has the second worst rate in the country - despite a fall in the numbers out of work.
But today the Big Lottery Fund handed out £22 million pounds in our region towards training and work placements. James Webster has been to see one woman who is hoping to benefit - and students preparing for life after education.
Fifteen people lost their lives while at work in Yorkshire and the Humber last year and almost 2,000 were seriously injured. Business are being urged to ensure workers safety as top priorty this new year.
The employment minister says a fall in unemployment shows the UK economy is 'turning a corner'. The number of people out of work in Yorkshire and the Humber fell by 6,000 in the three months to August.
Nationally, more than 1.1 million people have been unemployed for up to six months, down 32,000, but those out of work for between six months and a year rose by 29,000 to 446,000. The number of people out of work for over a year fell by 15,000 to 900,000.
"Today's figures show a rise in employment of more than a million under this Government, and they show that there are now more people in work than ever before. That's a really positive sign of growth in the UK economy, and a credit to British businesses for creating those jobs. We are not complacent - there's still work to do - but with more than 500,000 vacancies currently available, and with all the signs being that the economy is turning a corner, we can see that there are opportunities out there for hardworking people who aspire to get on in life."
