It could help your credit rating, as long as you consistently make all payments on the loan, on time. All you can do is apply and see if they approve the loan.

Sorry for the super delayed response.

A personal loan from a bank will help build your credit score similar to if you had a student loan and paid it back on time with no late payments. It is NOT like a credit card. A credit card is considered a revolving loan. You can pay down the balance on your account and then use that money again the next month if you need to. Once you pay back a personal loan it is done and you would have to apply for another personal loan.

I would check with your bank though, some banks say they will open a personal loan for you, but they do open it as a credit card. I would just ask them for clarification if it is just a money loan that is repaid, or if it will be a credit card.

Again sorry for the delayed response!
