Welcome to the forums! Securing a line of credit is not solely dependent upon your FICO score. They will look at your entire credit profile and your income in addition to how much you're asking for. You'll have to let us know what credit you currently have and the status, whether you have negatives, utilization, etc. I would suggest a credit union or a bank that you have an established relationship with.
