Write a one sentence description for each of the following financial instruments. Then fill in the following table in terms of type of claim (debt/equity), maturity (money market/capital market), risk (low/high/highest), and liquidity (low/medium/high). Identify a type of financial institution or other participant in the financial market (individuals, government, and business) that are most likely to borrow using these instruments, and a type of institution or other participant that are most likely to lend using these instruments.

A a) Commercial Paper: An instrument issued by commercial companies (banks, insurance and corporations) which offers fixed, generally low short-term rates for loans to the issuer for periods of one night ('overnights') to several months. It is generally used to fund working capital.

A b) Consumer Loans (Credit Card): Non-secured loans to consumers, generally with an indeterminate end date and minimum payments which are mostly interest.
