Rather than ask your family to jeopardize their credit, why not get a debit card until you've built up your own credit? First, it assures family that you won't default on payments and make THEM pay, and second it lets YOU build up a credit score. It's far more mature as well.

How do you find private individual to loan money or cosign for a loan?

You'd need to ask your friends and family. No one you don't know is going to cosign for you, and a lot of people you do know may turn you down also. Answer If you need someone to cosign a loan because you cannot obtain it on your own, you should not get a loan. All you are doing, in essence, is passing on the problem to another person, who will likely end up paying for both. Improve your habits and credit history and wait until you can do this on your own.
