What is a personal loan?

What is a credit score and should I be concerned about it?
A credit score is a four-digit number used by financial institutions to evaluate the likeliness of a borrower to repay his debts and the possibility of defaulting on loans.
The score ranges from 1000 to 2000, along with a risk grade from AA – HH.
Those with a lower score of 1000 (HH) means that they may have a higher chance of defaulting on a loan.
Those with a higher score of 2000 (AA) means that they will have a lower chance of defaulting on a loan.
If you suffer from a poor credit score, you should ensure that you make your loan repayments on time, and in full.
However, at GS Credit, we do not shun away from borrowers with a poor credit score. We aim to help all borrowers, regardless of their credit scores. This is why we do not have strict regulations when it comes to poor credit.
