Build or repair your credit with this low-cost loan
Building credit is important. It can save you thousands when it comes time to borrow money for a car or get a credit card. With most lenders, the higher your credit score, the lower your loan rate it. Whether you're wondering how to establish credit or you'd like to improve your existing score, a Credit Builder Loan could be for you.
With a Credit Builder Loan, the member requests a loan amount typically between $500-$1,000. The approved loan amount is placed in your Chesterfield Federal Credit Union savings account, where it will earn interest. The loan balance is paid off over a term of six months to one year. We report your on-time payments to the credit bureau, establishing or improving your credit history. Once the loan is repaid, funds can be withdrawn and used as desired. It's a great way to build credit and to start savings.
