Credit

Credit is borrowing money to fund the cost of acquiring goods or services today, via a contract to pay the money back, usually over a fixed time period, with the addition of interest. Lenders (creditors) will adjust the rate of return and other credit terms based on their analysis (based on cash flows, business potential, credit scores and other factors) of a borrower’s ability to repay the debt.
