Thats not much info to go on

But paying your bills on time is a good way to increase your score. 

There is no quick fix. The late pays stay on your report for 7 years or longer, Until you have more "on time payments" to offset the "late pays", you can expect your scores to stay low.  

Paying your bills on time is thebiggest key to getting higher scores.
