    Developing a credit record as a freelancer

    Business, Published on 06/10/2014

Should I start paying off the student loan now to create a good credit profile? Does the bank take payments into account when it comes to housing or car loan approvals, especially for freelancers? Can I start paying off my student loan ahead of the specified date?
