Informal finance

My informant tells me:  The advanced amount is less than the loan amount.  For a loan of Rs 10,000, the financer will advance Rs 9000.  Then he will recoup the principal plus interest amounting to Rs 10,000 (Rs 9000 principal +Rs 1000 interest) over the period of 100 days at Rs 100 per day.  The Rs 1000 interest on a borrowing of Rs 9000 for 100 days works out to a rate of  xxx% p.a.

For a loan of Rs 1000, the interest is Rs 100 over 100 days.
