This transaction can be recorded in two ways, depending on the preference of the owner of business.
First option is to treat the loan taken from a friend as a personal traansaction and not record in the books of the business. This money is then used to start the business.. This transaction should be recorded in the books of business.  This transaction has two aspects i.e. (1) cash has been received by business, hence Cash A/c will be debited. (2) This money has been given to business by the proprietor, hence Capital A/c should be credited.
Cash A/c   Dr.      15000
  To Capital A/c                      15000
Second option is to record the loan transaction in the books of the business.  Entry for that wii be:
Cash A/c          Dr.   15000
  To  12% Loan A/c                       15000
Personally I would prefer the second option because it records the loan taken for the purpose of business. Scondly we will be able to record payment of interest also and treat that as an expense of the business which will result in lower liability on account of Income Tax.
