Using business credit to get around you bad personal credit does not work. For the most part and there are countless stories on this forum to back this up, you will end up wasting several months and up wards of thousands of dollars to establish business credit that still will not get you the funding you need.
My suggestions - work on your personal credit - get it fixed as soon as you can - thus, you then can move forward with your business and not have to face this difficulty again.
You can also try to bring in a partner that does have good credit and try that way.
Or, you can bootstrap your business. Find ways to either raise very small amounts of capital from friends or family or use personal assets as collateral. Or, you could even attempt to start you business on a smaller scale - get out and drum up business - then take those orders and seek financing based on them. Financing business in hand usually does not require any type of credit score on the borrowers part.
