Loop is a Programming structure independent of Programming Languages. A Loop is used in Programs to repeat a calculation or to Check for a specific Condition.
Cursors are specific to Oracle(I Guess so) that define memory area. If a PL/SQL code retrives more than 1 row for calculation then a cursor is used
