Dear Friend,

Hello and welcome. Thank you for using Just Answer.

rakhivasavada :

The reply to this would be little broad as there is no short cut to reduce your debt and rebuild your credit. You will require a patient and consistent approach to this.

rakhivasavada :

To begin with, if you can afford, go ahead and pay more towards the highest cost debt. Usually this is either credit card or high cost personal loans. Pay more towards this.

rakhivasavada :

Also consider balance transfer on the cards at lower rate if possible.

rakhivasavada :

Also, STOP new credits. On one hand if you try and keep paying more and on the other had if you successfully stop create new debts, this will improve your debt equity ratio over some time.

Also, successfully paying more on high cost debt and no creation of fresh debts will result in improvement of your credit ratio and subsequently your credit score.

rakhivasavada :

AND YES, if you do not have credit card, consider having one "Secured" credit card. start using it and repaying back regularly, this will also help you build your credit anyway. This is ONLY IF APPLICABLE to you.

rakhivasavada :

I am sure this would help.
