Interest

Interest can be thought of as either the expense of borrowing money or the profit made from lending it out. Interest is often expressed as a yearly percentage of the principal loan amount.

Repaying a loan begins with paying back the initial loan amount, or principal. Additionally, you will be accountable to your lender for the interest that is associated with the loan. Loans like these can be found in a wide variety of formats. Credit cards, auto loans, mortgages, unsecured loans, and other forms of credit are all possible ways to incur debt. It is crucial to know the interest rate structure and the repayment schedule.
