Credit

Credit is issued to people who want to obtain something now, but who can’t or don’t want to necessarily pay for it now, based on that person’s ability to pay for it later. Credit can be used to purchase new property or to take out a loan, and a person’s creditworthiness is represented in different ways, including as a dollar amount called a line of credit or as a three-digit credit score.
