Usually not. Most if not all loan agreements require you to pay on time each and every month. Usually, some loan companies will give you 10 to 12 days after oyur due to date before late charges set in. If you think you may miss a payment call your loan company to work something out. You can make two payments the next month, pay as soon as possible, or whatever. Usually creditors will work with you if you may miss. Don't abuse any privileges you may be given though, as your contract can be revoked if you're late too many times, and your property, if any, repoed. If you find you may be late on a certain time of the month, consider having your due date changed. Remember, loan companies want to work with you because your business to them as they benefit from the interest fees. Most business will only take so much from a consumer who can't pay, so be careful.

It depends entirely on the company as to whether they report it or not. They can report any late payment, even if made during the grace period. If they don't report it, it will not affect your credit. If they do report it, it will show up in the credit reports.

When a loan is obtained the consumer generally keeps the entire amount of the loan for specific period of time and pays back the loan amount plus the interest at the end of the loan period?

The way most loans work is you are given a specified amount of money (or credit) available to make purchases with. You are also charged a specified interest rate, which may be fixed or variable. If the terms of the loan have a grace period, there is a set amount of time that you do not have to make payments on the loan; however, interest is often accumulating during this grace period. After you have received the money, and after the grace period is over, you will have to start paying back the loan in small payments. The payment amount will be based on how much you borrowed, what the interest rate is and how long you will take to pay back the loan.

Can a co-signer call for payment in full if the loan is not being paid?

The co-signer has no inherent authority to "call for" the payment in full of the loan. If the primary borrower is missing payments it is likely they cannot afford to repay the loan. In fact, if payments are being missed by the primary borrower the co-signer's responsibility will kick in and the lender will go after the co-signer for full payment of the loan.The co-signer has no inherent authority to "call for" the payment in full of the loan.

A loan holiday is some period of time (e.g., one payment period, two payment periods, etc.) where the borrower is not required to make a payment and will not be penalized as a result.

Why is more interest paid at the beginning of a loan period than at the end of the loan period?

Charging interest is the method by which a lender profits from loaning money to a borrower. The lender will set the terms of any loan to their advantage. They obviously want to get paid first and get paid the most. The balance of a loan is typically higher at the beginning of a loan, and interest will be charged on the balance. So as a person makes payments on the loan typically he/she will be making a payment consisting of part interest and part principal. As the person pays down the loan the interest that is calculated at the compounding period will be less because the principal amount has been reduced. For example, a person has a $1000 payment, at the beginning of the loan the payment may be broken down as ($900 interest and $100 principal), on the last payment of the loan the payment of $1000 may look like ($950 principal and $50 interest).

What is a single payment loan?

A single payment loan is just what it implies. The loan is due and payable in one lump sum, principal and interest, at the end of the period of time of the loan. Most loans are multiple payment or installment payment loans, like car loans, credit cards or mortgages where payments are made on a regular (usually monthly) basis over the term of the loan. This reduces the amount due on the loan gradually. In a single payment loan, nothing is paid during the term of the loan until the due date. On that date everything must be paid in full.
