Credit Builder Loan Overview
Securing the loan
Depending on the option you choose, the loan funds you borrow OR your existing savings will be held in your savings account as collateral for the loan and will not be available to you until the loan is repaid.
A positive payment history can help to improve your credit
Make on-time payments on the loan and your positive payment history gets reported to the credit bureau.
Earn interest and build savings for whatever you choose
When the loan is repaid, the full balance in the savings account, along with your accrued interest, will be available to use for whatever purpose you choose – maybe a down payment on a car, for home improvements or education.
An improved score could lead to better overall future experiences
An improved credit score can potentially help you to obtain a future loan at a better rate, or positively impact other aspects of life that are connected to a credit score rating like apartment rentals or certain jobs.
