Kindly make a comprehensive document and the terms and conditions have to be mutually decided so as to ensure that your money is safe, however the key terms should be with respect to

i. Acceptance of the loan amount
ii. Amount of interest
iii. Payment schedule (this should be clear and unambiguous)
iv. Mode of payment
v. Recourse in case of default
vi. Governing law of the Loan Agreement.

Kindly take care that there should not be any void terms in the agreement or terms which are contrary to the law.
