Your individual loan rate will vary based on your credit history and payment history. Borrowers who qualify for the lowest rate will have a better credit score than borrowers with less credit or lower scores. If you’re thinking of taking out a loan, be advised that a history of full, on-time payments tends to affect your credit score for the better.
