<span>Credit scoring is a procedure that exists in every financial institution. A way to predict whether the debtor was qualified to be given the loan or not and has been a major concern in the overall steps of the loan process. Almost all banks and other financial institutions have their own credit scoring methods. Nowadays, data mining approach has been accepted to be one of the well-known methods. Certainly, accuracy was also a major issue in this approach. This research proposed a hybrid

Performance indicators that are used in this research are classification accuracy, error rate, sensitivity, specificity, and precision. Experimental results based on the public dataset showed that the proposed method accuracy is 78 %. In compare to several popular algorithms, such as neural network, logistic regression and support vector machine, the proposed method showed an outstanding performance. </span>
