Set up an account for each of ur friends with their
name. All these accounts could be under a top level
account maybe called "To/From friends" or whatever u
like. The type of all these accounts will be "Bank".
Then when u loan money... mark a deposit in that
person's account.. when they pay you back, make a
withdrawal from it. Thats how I do it.
