loans for bad credit

What is a bad credit score or low credit score?

Basically people with bad credit or low credit scores can be divided into two explanations. 

The first: You have been active in the credit market, but due to unforeseen circumstances like losing your job, or some financial difficulties, you have not kept your accounts up to date or have neglected to pay your accounts, and even though there is no judgements against you, your score has dropped so low that you can not get credit.

The second: You have never had credit before and therefore there is no information to base your credit rating on.


Having no credit or poor credit is a major stumbling block to getting a loan because you are viewed as a high risk customer who might default and leave the credit provider struggling to collect the loan repayment. It is a known fact that until your credit score is top notch, you won’t fit the standard lending guidelines that banks have to follow. All detail of your credit behavior is listed by Credit bureau. When you open an account or take on credit of any kind, your repayment behavior is recorded by credit bureau, whether good or bad.
