We’ll talk a lot about your credit score here so it’s good to begin with a basic explanation of what it is and how it works.
Basically, a credit score is a numerical value various banks and credit card companies use to evaluate whether you are eligible to receive a loan or not. It’s based on a statistical analysis of your previous expenses and earnings.
