Why It Works

Banks and other lenders use your credit score to determine how risky it is to lend you money. A bad credit score can mean they won’t lend to you (or if they do, they will charge very high interest rates). Learn how credit works. Payment history is like the scorecard for your credit score (industry people also call it your ‘financial resume’). We all know how those work, right? Doing something well means a higher score. Doing not so well (missing payments, maxing out your credit card) puts you behind. Think of our Credit Builder Program as a “financial training camp”. Every payment you make in the program gets reported to the “referees” (credit bureau) as positive, and they increase your score accordingly by giving you points. While those improvements may start small, they build over time. In the end, you’re left with a sparkly-shiny good credit score and a world of new opportunities ahead of you. With good credit, the world is your oyster.

How It Works

When you sign up for Credit Builder, we create a secure account that no one can touch or access. The program is arranged into affordable payments for you (on a payment schedule that fits your lifestyle). Each of these payments contain an interest component. With this interest, we are able to report your program as an ‘installment loan’ to the credit bureau. With every payment made, your credit climbs as your trust grows! Once you’ve finished the Credit Builder program, you will have built up a little nest egg for yourself. As only a small portion of your payments go to interest and fees; the rest is yours! So you can go backpacking, pay down student loans, or just put it aside for a rainy day. So what you get at the end is a much improved credit score, a habit of making payments on time, and a chunk of change to spend however you like (not enough to buy a private island, though).

Last year around this time I was declined for vehicle financing. I was making more than I am now and had better stability in my job and address yet I was declined. I had no borrowing history. Credit cards sure but no installment payments showing on my report. Its next to impossible to get experience without having experience. Then I learnt about The Refresh Program. I signed up for a $2300.00 loan because in 3 years I want to get my own piece of land and $2300.00 will go a long way towards a down payment.

So not only am I saving for a house but I am building my credit too.

This year I was approved for financing through for auto financing and now I have a shiny new ride to cruise around in and an interest rate I can afford.

So I just wanted to say thank you. I would still be driving my '92 saturn if it wasnt for the effect Refresh Financial has had on my credit report. ”
