A lender can be a person or institution that loans a certain amount of money with the condition that it needs to be repaid—usually with interest—within a predetermined time. In the case of mortgages, these payments are traditionally made monthly, and come with different interest rates. 
Lender
Different institutions offer mortgage loans and act as lenders. They may be banks, online lenders, or mortgage brokers.  Many have different conditions and terms for the loan, so it’s important for you as a buyer to do your research as to what they offer and explore your options.

The FHA works with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban development to create requirements for lenders to meet if they wish to be termed, “FHA approved.” This approval means that a lender has met the FHA’s guidelines regarding loan types, loan limits, interest rates, etc. As a borrower, you have the option of applying for an FHA loan through one of these approved lenders. You can find them in your area through the HUD website.
