Line of credit

A line of credit or credit line is a type of financing in which a creditor lends money to another person (the debtor) to be repaid over a certain period of time in exchange for an interest rate that is known in advance.

The difference between a line of credit and a loan is that with credit lines the amount being repaid in each installment is available for use by the debtor. With a loan, it is not.
