I would to seek further explanation on how the interest on loans is calculated. And if its possible to show me how I can change this.

In my organisation, the interest is always a percentage of a fixed principal for the period of repayment, ie if I take a loan of $200 at an interest rate of 10% per month for a period of 12 months, I pay back ((10% of $200)*12) +200 at the end of the period. We have deployed cyclos already and we urgently need to correct this.Where is the exact java code that I can work on to effect this change. thanks in advance

### Re: Calculation of Interest on loan

hello,

i also need help with the loans part of cyclos. I want to do the following:

Give a loan of 1000 with an interest of 50% for 6months. That gives me 500 as the interest value. I add this to the 1000 granted to give the 1,500. This value is then divided in 6 equal installments to get a repayment figure of 250 a month. How do i go about setting this up in cyclos. I have created a loan with an interest of 50% but when i grant the loan the installment figure is 548. any help is greatly appreciated.

Is there a way to also add custom fields to the repayment window?
