Credit?

"Financial Trustworthiness"! An agreement in which a borrower receives something of value now and agrees to repay the lender at some later date. When the consumer purchases something using a credit card, they are buying on credit which means receiving the item at that time, and paying the credit card company month by month including interest.

Forms Of Credit?

Loans Let you borrow money that must be repaid with interest. You can obtain a loan for a specific purpose, such as financing a new car, paying college tuition and buying or renovating a home. You can get a debt consolidation loan, which combines all current debts from various creditors into a single reduced-interest payment plan. You can also get a credit limit linked to your checking account that gives you bounce-proof protection in case you write a check for an amount that exceeds your account balance.
Loans are generally divided into two types: secured and unsecured.

Secured loans are guaranteed by collateral, which is an item of equal or greater value than the amount

of the loan, such as a car, home or cash deposit.
Unsecured loans do not require collateral and are made based on your credit score and ability to repay.
