Real world...I assume you are the lender. No accounting until loan is issued. Once issued its a receivable on your books that you have to test for recoverability. Repayments I assume are part interest and part principal (though not sure from your description) and record as such - principal reduces loan receivable interest goes to income.
Is this real world or just a general question?
