A loan is a sum of money that is borrowed from a lender and repaid over a set period of time. Loans are typically used to finance the purchase of large or expensive items, such as a car or a home. The terms of a loan, including the interest rate, the repayment schedule, and the fees, will vary depending on the lender and the borrower's creditworthiness. In general, loans are repaid in regular installments, with a portion of each payment going towards the principal (the amount borrowed) and the rest going towards interest. There are many different types of loans, including personal loans, mortgages, and student loans.
