Bad Credit and No Credit History

According to Centris Federal Credit Union, its aim is to help its members achieve their financial goals and meet their needs. This implies that it may grant credit cards to those with a bad credit history or those starting to build one.

Most credit unions are willing to give its members with bad credit record another chance to mend their credit standing - if they are convinced of the honest intent of the applicant to do so.

First, you have to show that you are currently taking strong steps to be on the path to good credit standing such as - by having a regular job and by doing some saving. However, Centris Federal Credit Union may give you stiff terms to test your resolve of wanting to repair your credit such as - a card with a higher APR, a low credit limit, a credit card secured by your savings account or a co-signatory.
