You have to have active accounts in order to have a credit score. Your credit score can reflect your payments history on installment loans. Pay whatever accounts you have in a timely manner. Control and limit inquiries. Stay away from finance companies. Your score will not be as high as someone who has revolving credit accounts and manages them well. But you will have a score that reflects how you manage the credit you do have. If you have a mortgage, car payment, school loans, and sometimes even cell phone or utility bills that you pay on time, that will raise your credit score.
