What is coupon rate and coupon payments?

 - by Cindy

This is what i understand so far, hope it correct:

Coupon rate: fixed interest rate borrowers must pay to lenders.

Coupon payments: Interest paid by bond issuer to investor.

Also, i want to know who can issue bonds? (Just government?)

What is their advantages of issuing a bond?

And who can lent this money? e.g firms only or can anyone loan it?

Please give me simple explaination as I am new to these terms. Thank you.
