Important note to entrepreneurs: investors will take into account your Trust Points when making decisions to lend. Trust Points work like a handicap that ultimately influence the rate at which investors are willing to lend to you. The higher your number of Trust Points, the less of a risk you represent.  Please be aware that as well as losing points for making late repayments, this may also affect your credit rating. Conversely, a loan that is cleared without late repayments earns you points, which is seen as favourable to lenders, therefore reducing the interest rate at which they are prepared to lend to you.
