How does a USDA loan work if you have bad credit?

I have pretty bad credit right now. My wife and I are looking at a home that has been forclosed on and we would love to get it, but getting a loan the regular way is probably not going to work right now. Does anyone know exactly how the USDA loans work. Does your credit score have to be high or does it not... show more I have pretty bad credit right now.

Does anyone know exactly how the USDA loans work. Does your credit score have to be high or does it not matter?
Thank You
