Insufficient credit mean that there is either "no credit" information available or not "enough" credit information to base another credit decision on. He/she has not financed a car, loan, and/or a charge card at all or has only had it for a very short period of time (6 months or less). In other words, if you are looking for a loan, and I pull your credit, and there is nothing there to show me that you will or can pay on time, you have insufficient credit on which to base a decision.
