A good start is usually obtaining a secured credit card. You provide the lender $300, and they give you a credit card for the same amount. Don't charge more than 30% of the card, which would be $90. Make all payments on time, and preferably pay it off every month. Capital One and a few others offer secured cards. Once you get higher limits on cards, preferably charge no more than 10% of the available credit.
