Here is my best explanation:

'having' is the definition.
('own' can be a synonym of 'have')

'bought though about a quarter is on credit' is the wordplay.
I cannot really see how this works, but
'quarter' could be 'w' and 'w' is present in the answer.
'about' could be 'on' and 'on' is found in the leftover letters.
This may be the basis of clue (or it may be nonsense).
