A secured loan from your local bank or credit union should greatly help.  Most banks and credit unions offer a program in which you make a $1,000 deposit and they will loan you that money back at a very low interest rate.  The cost to do this at my local credit union is about $12 for a 12 month $1,000 loan that is great for a credit report.
