If you have applied for a loan, you will have to provide a security. This can be your business or gold or any valuable thing. The value of this security should greater than the amount you want to borrow. These days most of the people are using their property as security. Some have an extra vacant land, some have a second house and others use the house they live in for this purpose. When you give such an expensive item for security, you will have to be sure that it will be safe and will be given back to you after you have paid the loan back.
