Specific periodic amounts - the Borrower will make a certain payment to the Lender on regular intervals.

Interest only - the Borrower makes regular payments to the Lender that are put toward paying off the interest on the principal amount only, with no portion of the payment going towards the principal amount itself. Interest and principal - the Borrower makes regular payments to the Lender that are put toward paying off both the principal amount and the interest as it is compounded.

However, if you take collateral for the loan agreement, then you may be entitled to seize and sell the collateral if the Borrower fails to repay the loan.
(If the Borrower is unable to repay the loan the Lender can take possession of the security/collateral as repayment.)

Signing Details
Parties signing in front of: Q. Do I need witnesses to sign the Loan Agreement? A. Generally speaking, there is no requirement for a witness or notary public to witness the signing of the Loan Agreement. However, depending on the nature of the loan and the governing law of the jurisdiction in which you're entering into the loan, you may be required to have witnesses or a notary public witness the Loan Agreement. Even if it is not required, having an objective third party witness the signing of the loan agreement will be better evidence when you need to enforce the repayment of the loan. Signing the note in front of a notary public is the best evidence that the Borrower signed the loan agreement.
