No Credit? Low Credit? You Have Options!
According to a recent Wall Street Journal article, 53 million Americans do not have credit scores. Having a limited credit score, or having no credit score at all can present obstacles to you when it comes to getting a loan from a financial institution. Thankfully, there are ways that you can build your credit and improve your financial health.
How Do I Build Credit?

2. Take out a small loan and make timely payments.
This is a great way to help rebuild your credit, if you are confident that you can make the monthly payments on time.

3. Pay your bills on time.
This is the most important contributor to a good credit score. Delinquent payments and collections can have a major negative impact on a credit score, even if the debt you owe is a small amount. It is crucial that you make payments on time.
