Understanding credit is as important as knowing when to plant your crops.  Credit defines your trustworthiness in repaying your debt. This webinar will provide an overview of how credit is used in your everyday life.  Knowing how to obtain your credit report and correct mistakes are important steps in improving your credit score and reducing the amount of interest you pay on loans.  It is also an important step in protecting you identity.  Join us to develop a greater understanding of credit, how it impacts your life, and steps you can take to improve your credit score.
