A term loan is a money loan from a bank or non-bank financial institution that must be repaid in regular installments over a fixed period of time. 

Secured loan: Secured business loans require collateral in the form of equipment, machinery, raw materials, inventory or residential/commercial property. The interest rate on secured loans is comparatively lower than unsecured business loans.

Unsecured Loan: Unsecured business loans are loans where you are not required to provide any collateral to the lender. These loans are higher risk and hence have a higher interest rate.
