Lenders make profits if borrowers repay the amount financed with interest. To minimize their risk, lenders need to identify borrowers least likely to default on their loans. The objective of credit evaluation is to determine the probability of default based on available sources of information.Lenders and researchers have spent a large amount of time and effort in building sophisticated algorithms for credit evaluation.
