Clean out the Loan Shark is a side quest in Fallout.


Borrow money from Lorenzo Giovanni, the loan shark in the Hub, until he won't go any higher and then kill him. If the Vault Dweller has the cash to front, they can have a net gain of 1800 caps.

No one will interfere with killing Lorenzo, except for his guards. However his guards are difficult to take down at lower levels. Completing this side quest can be extremely lucrative as Lorenzo keeps many valuable items in his office such as 2034 caps in the locker, frag grenades and guns in the bookshelf on top of the initial profit from the loan.


  • Over 3800 bottle caps.
  • Assorted Weapons.
  • General loot.


  • If the player kills Lorenzo, Kane will be mad at them and won't let them see Decker. If the player kills Kane and Decker first, Lorenzo refuses to talk to them.
