Is there a specific term in the banking industry for a loan that is not yet fully paid-off? Is it considered "open" or "active" or what?

(if the correct answer contains more than one word, that is Okay.)

    I disagree with putting this question on hold. A dictionary can explain what a given word means, but only a thesaurus can list possible words and phrases to express a given meaning. In a specialized field, there are frequently one or more dictionaries, but seldom even one thesaurus. It was implied that a search engine would have given the correct answer. I am curious to know what site was intended and what keywords were used to find that site. – Jeff Morrow Oct 23 '17 at 20:20
