As the name suggests here in this article we would be discussing about Loan Companies.
What is a Loan Company
It is a financial institution in principle whose main motive behind operating, is to provide finance facilities to the public. It could be by way of loans or advances or otherwise, for any activity other than its own (excluding equipment leasing and hire-purchase activities).
Loan is in principle a kind of agreement wherein the lender temporarily lends property, in most cases cash to the borrower, with a promise that the borrower will return it along with the interest rate mentioned in the terms and conditions of the loan agreement.
