    and not a dollar's worth of credit

    Hello everyone,

    I know a man that started in business with thirteen cents and not a dollar's worth of credit. In ten years he has built up a large and profitable business. He attributes his success to two things—belief that he would succeed and hard work

    What does the highlighted part mean?

    Thank you

    credit

    noun

    1
    the ability of a customer to obtain goods or services before payment, based on the trust that payment will be made in the future.
    ■ money lent or made available under such an arrangement.
    COED

    Nobody would lend him a single dollar or let him have a dollar's worth of merchandise on his promise to pay later.
