Credit Karma did not turn you down and does not  have credit cards.   You will want to apply for a secured card with the credit card company itself.  If the company you applied to did not offer you an option of a secured card during their denial, they may not be interested.   Select Credit Cards at the top menu bar, and select Secured as your option.   BEFORE you apply ensure you read fully their policy.  Some charge a yearly fee as well as a monthly maintenance, this you do not want.   If you quality, I suggest USAA, they have a minimal yearly feel they allow you to boost your credit line through additional deposits to an interest paying CD.  You will have to maintain that account for 2 years.    Capital one has a unique program where you pay a minimal fee for a line of credit.  The more you pay up front, the higher your credit line if your qualify.   Both mentioned offer to convert to a non-secured after a period of time.   Many others clearly state that they will not convert to a non-secured.   Read the reviews on the credit card companies before you apply.
