How to Build your Credit Score


How to Build your Credit Score

Logo for How to Build your Credit Score
This learning object is designed to teach young adults how to effectively build a credit score. There are three main loan options for building a score which include finance company loans (payday, check-cashers, pawn shop), installment loans (auto, home, student loans), and revolving credit (credit cards, store cards, personal lines of credit). Some loan options you should avoid, others can be incredibly effective tools for quickly and efficiently building credit.
