From ‘haves’ to ‘have-nots’: how Covid-19 is swelling UK’s subprime ranks

That is the fate facing thousands of Britons who, often for no fault of their own, could begin 2021 as “subprime” borrowers if they have had more than six months of relief from Covid-19 debt woes.

This could have dire consequences for people who have historically struggled to access credit, especially those on low incomes.
