Your chances are pretty slim. With that being said, my suggestion to you is to open a bank account and start building a long term relationship. Once you build up $1,000.00 in your savings account parlay that into a secured loan. Make your payments for 6 months and then pay it off in full. Now you have a positive credit history. It is an old fashion way of building your credit but it works!
