  • First things first, let's take a look at your credit.
  • I'm here to get a loan for a car.
  • Well, you see ma'am.  Credit is something you earn through the bank and depending on how reliable you are is how good your score is.
  • What is credit? I just want a loan.
  • You have to have credit in order to take out a loan, otherwise, why would the bank trust you.
  • Still... What does this have to do with me?
  • The bank will issue you a credit card to use.  You use it to build credit, but remember, this isn't like a debit card.  You have to pay us back.  Paying us back on time is what builds good credit.
  • Okay I get it.  How do I built credit?
  • Well, there are many free websites online, but you are entitled to a free credit report from each of the three credit report agencies through the bank. They are Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. 
  • Ok, how do I know what my credit score is?
  • Well you're all set to go ma'am
  • Haha, I sure am glad I did!
  • Now I regret not taking that personal finance class in high school
