Credit is an Asset You Can Build

A credit check is part of almost anything you try to do these days … get a job, get a home, insure your car … . A good credit score will save you money and open doors.

Credit building is the work of establishing or improving a score so you can move on in your life.

Nonprofit organization New Growth explains in this short video how credit building works.

You do not need a lot of money or time to build a good score. You certainly do not need to pay anyone to “fix” your score. Credit is an asset you can build today.

Many have no score because they have not used credit much, or they’re young and just getting started. Others believe they cannot improve their credit score if they have bad credit in the past.

New Growth can help. We are on a nonprofit mission to improve lives and livelihoods in rural Missouri. Credit building is essential for helping people join the financial mainstream.
