To read the Intro and download the R packages, see the first part in this article.

After loading the dataset and data management, it is time to make the credit modelling visualizations in R:

Chart on customers
ggplot(data = loan,aes(x = grade)) + geom_bar(color = “blue”,fill =”green”) +geom_text(stat=’count’, aes(label=..count..))+ theme_solarized()
ggplotly(p = ggplot2::last_plot())

The above coding gives us the following graph:

Now lets look at histogram based upon loan amount and interest rate:

#Histogram on loan amount
ggplot(data = loan,aes (x = loan_amnt,fill= grade))+ geom_histogram()
ggplotly(p = ggplot2::last_plot())
#Histogram on interest rate
ggplot(data = loan,aes (x = int_rate,fill= grade))+ geom_histogram()
ggplotly(p = ggplot2::last_plot())

This gives us the following two histograms:

Next, it is time to look at the density plot on loan- and interest rate based grade type.

#density on loan based on grade type
ggplot(data = loan,aes(x = loan_amnt,fill = grade)) + geom_density()
ggplotly(p = ggplot2::last_plot())
#density on interest rate based on grade type
ggplot(data = loan,aes(x = int_rate,fill = grade)) + geom_density()
ggplotly(p = ggplot2::last_plot())

This gives us the following plots:
