Line of Credit

A line of credit is a term for the funds that a financial institution makes available to a consumer or business for use in a manner determined by the borrower. This form of credit offers a seemingly endless access to funding so long as the borrower continues to make payments to stay under the credit limit set by the lender. Often a line of credit can be increased after an extended period of on time payments and continuous use of the service.
