  • You can apply for a small loan or get a secured credit card and pay everything as agreed for a while to build up credit.

  • Get a secured credit card from the bank and make sure they report to the credit bureaus and every time you charge something when you receive your next statement pay it off and within 6 months your credit score will start to go up good luck.

  • Sorry forgot to mention that a secured credit card is you have to put a certain amount of money on it and that will be your credit limit meaning that you can only spend what you put in .

  • Go buy tires or furniture, on a 6 month no % loan. Those companies will give money to anyone. Pay it off before the 6 months, so you pay no %. This will build credit.
    You can also give the bank money, and borrow it back from them at a % rate. That will build credit, but it does cost about $24 for every $1000.
