Does Credit Score Affect Lender’s Decision?
While applying for a personal loan your credit score plays an important role. The reason behind this is a personal loan is an unsecured loan. It is based on your capability to return the loan. It means that it is based on the income and the credit history of the applicant. If your income is enough and your credit history is also good then you can easily get a personal loan. Let us discuss a credit score first.
A credit score is basically the measure of the credit history of the customer. It shows that how good are you with your debts. CIBIL (Credit Information Bureau India Limited) is a company that takes care of all the records of the debts of the customer. It doesn’t matter that you are getting a personal loan from any bank or non-banking financial company, CIBIL will have the record of it. So if you do not deal properly with your debts then it will impact your CIBIL score negatively and if is you are punctual with your debts then your CIBIL score or credit score will be affected positively. It ranges from 300 to 900. The more the better, if your credit score is more than 720 you will get a personal loan easily. Otherwise, you will have a problem in getting a personal loan.

Yes, it does, because a personal loan is completely based on the credit history and the income of the applicant. If your credit score is good it means that you are very punctual towards your debts, you pay your debts on time. So lender feels secure that you can return the loan on time.
