Explanation:
O.b.v. zou voor "op basis van" kunnen staan maar ik vind dit niet zo'n logische keuze. "In de vorm van" klinkt voor mij beter:

XXX brengt ook 130,000 werkkapitaal in, in de vorm van een lening.

neutral  grissini: Depends on what you mean to say: in the form of a loan(in de vorm van)= XXX expects to get his money back from wherever he/she offered it, 'on basis of' could also mean XXX borrows the money he/she injects from the bank. So clarify if needed.
