Rebuild Your Credit
We like to say “yes,” even if no one else will.
If you have a low credit score, below 619, life can be a little tougher. You may not qualify for loans or rentals, and you could pay higher interest rates and insurance premiums. Some employers even check credit reports when making hiring decisions. Because it’s so important, Peninsula is committed to helping you make a fresh start, get back on your feet, and rebuild healthy credit.
Peninsula works with you to take the necessary steps to build your credit score, pay down debt, and get back on track.

Credit Score Improved
“Since I started my Share Secured loan, my credit score has jumped 20 points. Thanks Peninsula! ”
Relieved My Stress
“I wanted to get a small loan using my car as collateral, so I could fix up my home before placing it on the market. The lending department approved the loan for more than I was asking for so I could make that month’s mortgage payment and payoff some smaller bills to relieve some stress. What a great feeling! ”
Helping Build a Credit Score
“I was shocked to find out that because I didn’t have a credit score, my insurance rates tripled. I went to Peninsula to find out if there was something they could do that wouldn’t require me to pay a lot of interest. I learned about a Share Secured Line of Credit, opened one, and now my credit score stays active. ”
