The ability to borrow money. The better one's creditworthiness, the more likely it is that a bank or other financial institution will extend credit. One establishes creditworthiness by repaying loans and other bills on time, spending prudently, and generally showing that one can behave in a financially responsible way. Individual creditworthiness is measured by the FICO score while a company's or other organization's creditworthiness usually is measured by its credit rating.
