    Borrow / Lend / Loan

    Lend        Used only as a verb and is sometimes synonymous with the word 'loan'.

                   It means  to allow someone to use something temporarily : Banks lend money.

                   'Lend' can also be used figuratively: Lend me your ears = Listen to me.

    Loan        'Loan' is most commonly used as a noun.

                   It usually refers to a sum of money that we must pay back with interest:

                   I'm going to take out a loan at the bank.

                   We can also use it as a verb (the opposite of 'borrow'): Yes, I will loan you the laptop.

                   (Note : 'Loan' is also used as a synonym for 'lend' in North American English.)

    Borrow    It means using something that belongs to someone  with the intention of returning it:

                  I need to borrow some money.

                 BORROW means 'to take' while LEND / LOAN mean 'to give'.
