A credit-builder loan is designed to help people who have poor credit or who have little or no credit history build credit. Credit-builder loans do not require good credit for approval. They do require that you have enough income to make payments. The amount you borrow is held in a credit union account while you make payments. Your payments are reported to the credit bureaus, Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. Because credit scores are calculated from information in your credit reports, on-time payments can have a big impact.
