What Is Credit?

Credit, in financial systems, is the ability of a person to acquire goods or services before paying for those goods or services. Credit is based on trust, and is built through past actions that show that that person will reliably make future payments for those goods or services. When a person acquires goods or services without immediate payment, that person is holding “debt”.
