    Try going to your bank and see if you can't make an arrangment. I went to Wellfargo and they set me up with a $300 credit limit and a year later I upgraded to an $800 limit.

    One of the most classic ways is to apply for a secure credit card, secure it with funds, and use if for small purchases each 30 day cycle. However, you must pay off the balance (in full) before the cycle closes.

    Are you married? Have a signifigant other? If your partner has credit cards you could "piggy back" as an authorized user assuming he/she/they have good credit. That will boost your score. A secured credit card is also good idea. Orchard bank offers a secured credit card and your bank should also have an option for a secured credit. All of these things will take 3-6 months to show a positive impact on your credit profile but it's well worth it. Good luck.
