The benefits of having good Credit you can get loans easier like for example,if you want to get a loan for a car It will be easier for you if you have for example a 731 credit score instead of someone Who has 535, before the bank gives you the loan they get your Credit Report to see if you can get the loan. If you have good credit the bank trusts you on giving you the loan because you have Creditworthiness.
