In a loan, the borrower borrows an amount of money, called the principal, from the lender. Borrower is obligated to pay back to the lender at a later time. The loan is generally provided at a cost, referred to as interest, which is an incentive for the lender to provide the loan. A borrower has to pay the principal, amount borrowed, plus interest. Money can be paid after a certain date, or partial repayments, or in regular instalments.

Funds provided by the bank to an entity for a specific purpose, to be repayable after a short duration is known as Advances.

If the above answer is right, it would be advances are short term loans reported seperately. GAAP often requires debt due within 1 year to be reported in its own category
