Credit Scores: What's Good, Average and Bad?
When applying for a business or personal credit, the first thing that matters is your credit score.
In the same way, a report card described what kind of student you were, your credit score tells banks or other lenders what type of borrower you are. Your credit score tells a lender how well you’ve repaid loans in the past, and how likely you are to repay a loan in the future.
