Try credit union or apply for a secured credit card. Choose a bank or credit union that reports to all 3 credit bureaus. If you get approved for a new loan (i.e. secure card), then pay in full what you use each month so that good payments will be reported. Your credit report will look better after around a year I think. Most bank will then offer you to upgrade your secured card into a non-secured one, even with rewards and good features. Use this site (credit karma) and credit sesame to check your report and score periodically to see the improvement. Good luck!
