A credit score highlights a person’s “creditworthiness.” If a person normally pays their credit off quickly and has limited outstanding debt, then they will typically have a higher credit score. On the other hand, people who do not pay their credit off very often will typically have a lower credit score. A higher credit score means that a person is more likely to be approved for a loan.
