  1. Thanks for this article. I will also like to mention that it can possibly be hard while you are in school and starting out to initiate a long history of credit. There are many college students who are merely trying to pull through and have a good or positive credit history can be a difficult point to have.

  2. This actually answered my problem, thank you!
