Since you do not have a credit history, the lenders may be finding it difficult to make an assessment of your financial situation.

Typically, a Credit Information Report contains details of your credit history, including your identity information, credit accounts, loans, payments and recent enquiries. In addition the report also typically has a credit score.

What you need right now is to build a credit history for yourself. We suggest, you try to obtain a small ticket size credit/ loan such as secured credit card against a fixed deposit and ensure that the credit card payment / loan is paid in full before the due date. This will be a good first step in establishing a positive credit history for you.

Asking your bank/ lender to open a secured account, can be a good way to demonstrate you can manage your finances, which can lead to establishing a credit history and building strong credit scores over time.
