By definition, you have 'bad credit' if you pay your debts late or fail to pay them altogether. Therefore, if you have bad credit due to debts, or late payments, and you have no money, there is no way for you to repair your bad credit. But sometimes bad credit can be due to errors on your credit report. If this is the case, obtain a copy of your credit report, notify the credit reporting agency of the errors, and they will check into their accuracy and remove them from your credit report if they find that they are indeed truly errors.
