### What is a Loan?

A loan is a contract between a borrower and a lender in which the borrower receives an amount of money (or principal) that they are obligated to pay back in the future. In financial terms, this can be defined in simple terms as follows.

A loan is the lending of money by one or more organisations, individuals, or other entities to other organizations, individuals etc. The recipient that means the borrower incurs a debt and is usually liable to pay interest on that amount taken as a loan until it is paid back as well as to repay the principal amount borrowed. This interest can be simple or compound interest depends on the lender but most of the time it will be compound.

### Loan Balance Formula

The formula which can be used to find the loan balance at any time during the tenure of the loan is as follows:

$$\begin{array}{l}B=A(1+r)^n-\frac{p}{r}[(1+r)^n-1]\end{array}$$

Where,

B = Loan Balance

A = Loan amount

r = Interest rate per month

n = Tenure in months

p = Monthly payment
