Update: One of my readers came across this page while researching credit and thought that other readers would be able to benefit from the guide listed below (that’s in English and also has a Spanish version).
Members of the Hispanic community have made strides toward financial equality, but recent data shows that 15% of Hispanics have no credit history and still experience challenges in the personal finance space.

To help readers even further, experts translated the guide to accommodate Spanish-speaking readers (see below):
