In these economically hard times, your one chance for survival is to have some decent savings in the
bank. That way, should you lose your job because of the recession that is going on, you will have
something to fall back to, some money that will help tide you over until you get another job. If you
don’t have this, your only alternative is to get a loan. How can you repair bad credit?

A bad credit standing is achieved if you have managed to not take care of your finances and loans.
People with bad credit scores are those that have not had any payments for their loans for years or
those that have not managed to even pay half of their credit card debts. If you have a couple of bank
loans and a few credit cards that you have not yet fully paid in years and with interest already
growing, chances are you have a bad credit standing.

Although it is quite easy to get a bad credit standing, it is hard to repair your reputation with the
banks and redeem yourself. You can repair your bad credit by following some of these tips and tricks.
1. Get a Credit counseling - Admitting that you have a problem and seeking help is the first sign that
you are willing to change your ways. For banks and financial companies, this is a good sign. Credit
counseling will provide you with sound advice on how to manage you debt and how to make small
payments until you finish paying for the debt.
2. Making payments - You also need to show that you are going to pay for your loans and you can do
this by making regular payments to the account. It does not matter if you cannot pay the whole
amount or that you are only paying a small portion of the total loan.
3. Consolidate your debt - Most people who have multiple debts will be asked to make one huge
loan to pay for all the other debts so that you will only need to worry about just one loan. Before
you do this, make sure that you have checked with all the banks and have managed to get the lowest
interest rates for the loan.
4. Make a commitment - Going to the bank and assuring them that you will be paying your loan will
give the impression that you are a man of your word and that you are not afraid to face them. When
you do this, it will be more likely for the banks to give you a loan again especially if you need them in
an emergency.
