Loan Against Security

What is loan against security?

Banks are the intermediaries who bridge the gap between savers and investors. Thus, the main function of the bank is to deposit money and sanction loans. While the bank promises to repay the deposits with interest to the depositors, the borrowers who take loan must repay money along with interest.
