The interest rate is the cost associated with borrowing money; that is, the price of credit. In a loan transaction, the lender gives up the immediate use of funds to the borrower. In return, the lender receives compensation (interest), in addition to the eventual full repayment of the loan amount. Interest is expressed as a percentage of the loan amount. Setting interest rates is the primary monetary policy tool available to central banks to manage open market economies.
