You have to pay for it later. If you proceed to not pay them, the loans will build up. The same thing that will happen if you go 60 days with no payment on any of the loan payments, eventually they will repo you car. If you can't make the full payment, SEND SOMETHING. You can thing petition the court at a later day to prevent repossession (called an injunction) by proving you have done everything in your ability to pay for it. The company will also cut you a little more slack. Make sure you pay you loans, it will destroy your credit if you don't.

Why is there more interest paid at the beginning of a loan period than at the end?

In a simple interest loan, you are paying interest on the amount of money you have borrowed in each payment period. When you make a payment, a certain amount of it goes to repay the loan, reducing the principle. In the next payment period, your interest is being calculated on a smaller amount borrowed. In the first payment, you are paying interest on the entire amount borrowed. In the next payment, you are paying interest on the amount borrowed minus the principle amount from the first payment. That's why paying extra principle early in the life of a loan can make a big difference in the time it takes to pay it off. In a 30 year home mortgage for example, in the first year the principle will be reduced by about the amount of one month's payment. If you make an extra payment toward the priniciple equal to one month's payment, you will have effectively gained an entire year in the retirement of the loan.
