Credit Score

A credit score is a number which is based on a statistical analysis of a person’s credit file, to represent the creditworthiness of that person.  A credit score is primarily based on credit report information typically sourced from the credit bureaus.  A credit score is primarily based on credit report information, typically from one of the three major credit bureaus: Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax.

Why do you need a good credit score

Lenders, such as banks and credit card companies, use credit scores to evaluate the potential risk posed by lending money to consumers and to mitigate losses due to bad debt.

Lenders use credit scores to determine who qualifies for a loan, at what interest rate, and what credit limits.

Credit scoring is not limited to banks. Other organizations, such as mobile phone companies, insurance companies, landlords, and government departments employ the same techniques.
