Bad credit is one of the worst problems to have.

Getting a personal loan with those credit scores will be a challenge, especially if you have no collateral to back up the loan. I assume that the "bills" you are talking about are standard credit card bills. These are essentially "signature loans" which is the kind of loan you're looking to obtain. Typically, the banks will not offer a signature loan to pay off other signature loans, even with higher credit scores, since you could accumulate more debt on the cards you'd be paying off. Most consolidation loans are home equity loans. A couple of options: Pay off your bills one at a time. If you have a few credit card balances, pay the minimum payment on all but the smallest balance. Then, take any additional money you have every month and apply it all to the smallest balance until its gone. DO NOT PUT ANY ADDITIONAL CHARGES ON THIS CARD. Then, continue to the next smallest balance etc until all the cards are paid off. If you don't have any additional money at the end of the month, you must do one of two things: reduce your monthly spending or get a second job to make more money (work OT, weekends etc). There is some good news. As long as you have not defaulted on any accounts since your bankruptcy and if you're paying your bills on time, in another two years the bankruptcy will "age out" of your credit report. (Most items on your credit report, good or bad, only appear on the report for 7 years after they were last reported to the credit agencies). When the bankruptcy is no longer on the report, your scores should climb back to 700 or more.

If you have no collateral the best bet would be to go with your current bank. They will have record that you are paying your bills and also hold onto your checking account. Most will only give about a 5,000 cosolidation loan though.

Credit repair implies rebuilding your good record. You get a small loan initially and as you make timely payments towards the debt, you are approved for bigger loans, directly related to your business growth. Certainly the lenders would like to know your plans for utilizing these funds and rectifying your old mistakes. This reassures them that their money is being spent wisely. For a bigger business, they might work closely with the organization supervising your actions regularly. What that means is that you are regulated and tested by a financially successful organization and you can learn from them.
