If you are planning to apply for a working capital loan, remember that the approval of your loan application shall depend on your CIBIL score and various other vital components of your credit report. The CIBIL score is a 3-digit numeric that ranges from 300-900, which is calculated by the credit bureaus based on your credit information provided by the lending institutions on a monthly basis. 

Your generated CIBIL score is based upon your creditworthiness, payment history and various other factors. Find below the relevance and significance of checking your credit report periodically. 

Significance of your CIBIL score while applying for a Working Capital Loan

When you maintain a high CIBIL score (750+), it depicts your credit responsible behaviour that further helps lenders to gain confidence in your repayment capability and proceed with the loan approval process. 

A low CIBIL score may lead to instant loan application rejection due to the perceived high risk of default by the applicant. It is recommended to maintain your CIBIL score at least 700 to avail working capital loan at competitive interest rates from various lenders. It is always beneficial to check Credit Score online for free to know the possibility of clearing the eligibility criteria, as defined by the lending institution for working capital loans.
