Mr. Manish, a middle class businessman was happy with his life. He was very good in his work which inspired him to expand his business which could change his life in the future. His dream was to have a respected name in the market. He did not want to be a billionaire, but just wanted a good name in the market.
He did not have sufficient funds which he could invest to expand his business. After all his thoughts, he finally decided to apply for loan for bank. He was confident that his loan will be accepted.
One day while he was working in his office, he received a call from the bank which informed him that his loan was rejected. He was shocked to hear this news. He was totally depressed. He asked his agent (advisor) the reason for rejection, which informed him that his loan was rejected due to his bad credit health.
Manish was unaware about the term “credit health”. He was also unaware that bad credit health could affect in his loan approval. He also came to know that his credit score was low i.e 550 as he had defaulted payment in the past. He never knew that defaulting on payment could raise this impact on his report and reduce down his credit score.
