Research query: Underground Jewish economy in Hungary pre WW II

I'm looking for sources, preferably in English, but Hungarian will do, about what would have been an underground economy in Hungary between the wars. I'm particularly interested in Jews as loan sharks to other Jews, gambling, smuggling and actitvities of that nature. The geographical focus is in and around Papa. I'm not interested in activities related to getting Jews out of Hungary just prior to WW II.
