If you don’t have a credit history, you won’t have a good credit score. A credit score is a number that rates your credit risk. Creditors use it to determine whether to give you credit and what terms to offer you. Having a high score can make it easier for you to get a loan, rent an apartment, or lower your insurance rate. Having a properly managed credit card increases your credit score.
