    lenders give money (belonging to others who have saved the money to use) to people who want to borrow it, and then the borrowers invest it in something that becomes an asset, like a home, or goods.

    Savers are, for example, individuals with certificates of deposits or other investments intended to accrue interest.

    Okay, it’s pretty easy.

    The “savers” here would be the people who keep their money in the bank – in checking accounts, savings accounts, CDs, whatever.

    The banks are the “lenders” – the “intermediary lenders” (the go-betweens). They are investing in a loan, is the way to think about it.

    The bank writes out a check for $ 500,000 (say), to a couple who want to buy a house. The bank got the money from putting together all the money from all the little accounts it had. In return, the bank got a “promise to pay” from the couple (probably also backed by the collateral of the house) – the bank made a loan. That’s the business of banking.
