It tells me to build credit by getting credit cards, but when I apply it brings my score down, so what do I do?

Hello Meshonda. Sorry to hear that you're struggling to build your credit. If you have very little credit, a good starting point may be to start small with a secured credit card or a credit-builder loan. Try your local credit union, which should also be able to give you some options to build your credit.
