Credit and debt
Credit is money you borrow from a financial institution like a
bank or credit union, to spend the way you want.
However, credit isn't your personal money tree growing in the
backyard. Any credit you use is a debt that must be paid back to
the credit provider - usually with extra costs on top of the amount
you borrowed such as interest, fees and charges.
