Interest is haram. If the person who borrowed you the money is a Muslim, you should discuss the issue with him and explain him not to take the interest. You too are equally sinful as you agreed to pay interest. Paying interest is a big curse. You should try to clear the loan as soon as possible. If you have excess money, use that to pay out the loan instead of going for Hajj.
