26 Best Startups Operating in the Credit (fintech) Space

Stay Home And Get Good Credit

The pandemic they say has been a great equalizer. Everyone going thru the same  uncertainty, every industry hit with the same crumble, and every country endeavoring to regularize the unseen situation. Nevertheless our  individual  credit score  has somehow remained  distinctly  singular to our habits. And there is no short cut to regain good credit but we can by all means better our credit by some best practices.

The pandemic has forced us to stay in doors and somehow our health , immunity  anxieties over fighting the virus has surpassed over the planned move to buy a new car, an expensive dress , a  voted purse or Jimmy Choo shoes. On a lighter note, stocking up on toilet paper was more rampant that booking those Air BNB at fantastic  discounts. This left us with a somewhat good opportunity to not spend so much on our credit cards and eventually stick to just essentials that tide us over the stay home period. That itself was an opportunity to align our credit spending powers to balance out. IE: work on our credit score  so that we are up and there when we are ready to spend again.

The first guideline would  budget your buying even if for essentials because other amenities spend has slowed down. And since you could do without that dress or purse these last four months, you can continue to do without it  until you re arrange that credit  score.

From April its been easier on the pocket than the same months last year or years before that. This would be good time  to reduce your number of credit lines  you have. Because the simple logic is the number of cards impact your credit score. It’s a good practice to always remember a credit card is  money lend by a bank to us. It works because we don’t want to carry cash , but it has to be paid back to the respective lender. That way we are on our toes and make judgmental calls not to bust the limit. Focus that in all eventuality we have to pay the source.  This way we stand firm from  liquidity perspective.

Cards mandatory ask  a 5% repayment expected on due date. That Is to keep in mind when we make our purchases. Simply because late payment fees are charged along with interest rates applicable and taxes. To avoid these extra burden on our repayment process. Its good practice to do the simple math every time you swipe that lucrative card on purchases way beyond our means. As its said, there are no free lunches neither are dinners or breakfast.  That’s another good snooze in your head while making those purchases when you are working to  aligning   your credit line.

Another attempt to save or repair your credit score, is to avoid cash withdrawals on your credit cards. The financial charges on these are way higher than we  can calculate in case  you are one of those who make minimum payment of your cards. Cash withdrawals on credit card is never is good exercise .Period. This brings us to the next step  is always try and attempt to make full payment on your cards. Credit cards offer us security in lieu of cash, hence the way they are utilized make us appealing  or reviling  to the lender. IE the bank or financial institution. This directly affects our credit  rating. Because customer spend behavior pattern is tracked by all lenders.

Another important  piece of advise before we wind up avoid using credit cards outside of your territory . The cards that are even touted as discount at international  usage; hit the holder with costly conversion changes, because spending in foreign currency influences the card to be swiped at the real time conversion along with levied charges that can be anywhere from 3% to 5 % or less depends on the  bank card you are using. But believe me no bank leaves this opportune to make more money out of the card holder.

Even the pandemic cannot stop  bills and EMI’s that are contracted  month in and out. Although a lot of finance houses are offering deferment in repayment. A wise move would be keep abreast of such places and really apply to them. Make a solid move to approach them, ask them if you fit the criteria and negotiate your  repayment plan, this is in case your credit is way busted  and in need of quick fix. Deferment now can only work if and only if you plan to stick with your budgeting . If you are not so sure on your cost to income (CTI) flow period on period annually. Work out  simpler terms for month to month on your own.

Last but not the least, work out your expenses spent on all cards put together between 25% to 40% based on your debt burden which is not imputed on the card. Like rent, school fees, etc. for Example: higher the EMI on a mortgage loan then exercise a 25% budgeting on  your cards limits put together. If you run lower cost on your living expenses then can keep on 30% which is a sweet number in all probability.

To sum up the best practices, always remember, our cards are our identity to better credit and using them wisely makes us less susceptible and keep our neck above  credit waters.

Credit Over The Years.

Very many years ago, more like eons ago. Credit was something that was rendered to the privileged few. It was as simple as a merchant giving credit to a person he/she could trust to pay him/her back. Anyone without the means, repute or modest could not get the much sought-after “credit”.

This simple concept of rendering credit progressed into making it available to each and everyone in a myriad of ways. Via multiple and diversified products such as credit cards, mortgages, automobile loans, student loans, etc. Soon, credit was not limited to just merchants. It spread to financial and non-financial institutions whose business was to lend money. And to be a person of repute or privilege was to be able to prove his/her ability and standing to get a loan and pay it back too.

This opened avenues of risk and control and lending became the need of the hour; from cradle to grave, because credit lives on in the family name well after. Not to mention the corporate commercial loan which also uses the basic concept of credit but with the method of amortization.

 Coming back to consumable retail/personal credit, it’s always important to understand that the eons old theory still remains at its core. That is, finance is extended to the person/end user who is known for his/her capability and ability to pay it back.

Then follows the concept of institutions making a profit during the repayment period, because the pursuit of profit is inherently what finance lending is all about. In today’s world improving your credit worthiness is as crucial as the healing of the ozone layer of the earth. So get those oxygen levels hiked up and start working on your credit worth as soon as you evaluate how your credit score infers. Since credit lines are worked and reworked on the income/spending and delinquency behavioral pattern of an individual. The more one spends carefully, the sooner one reaches the outstanding, well-revered credit score.
