Aster is a partner with the Rental Exchange. The Rental Exchange was developed by the Big Issue foundation and seeks to help people improve their housing and financial situations.
The Rental Exchange uses data on your rent payments to add to your credit score. Everyone has a credit score and banks and stores use this to work out if they should lend money and if so at what interest rate and price. So if you have a good credit score you will get better credit offers on things like store credit, bank loans and hire purchase arrangements.
