You can get small loans to amount starting from $250 to $1000 that will help to get repayment history reported to credit agencies. This method will help you to improve your credit score in a very short period of time.
⦁ What if you want to close your credit card account?
If you have more than one credit card account and want to close one of them, choose to close the newer one. The older the card, the longer the history is better to higher the credit score, so we will suggest you close the new credit card.
⦁ Diversify your accounts

Basics to understand your credit score
Usually, a credit score of 300 is considered poor while 850 is considered excellent. Higher the score shows the good credit history like you have paid all of your bills on time, lower the credit score will be a proof you do not make payments on time; as a result, lower the credit score.
Although there is no cutoff for the good and bad score, more than 750 is considered as good, and a score lower than 720 is considered as a bad score. The average credit score record in 2019 was 700.
