How long to payoff a $2000.00 personal loan?
Hi everyone,

I just got a $2000.00 personal loan at a decent rate for a 1 yr term and was wondering if it would hurt my CS if i paid it off before the year term or do i need to pay it on a consistent basis for several months before doing so?

The purpose of the loan was to hopefully build up my credit score (720 atm).

Thanks in advance.
