"She pawned her Jewellery with a pawnbroker to get a loan."
In this sentence should I use 'get' or 'take'?
Please throw some light on it.

    The word "pawn" refers to taking a loan by using something as security, so "She pawned her jewellery" is sufficient to convey the meaning that she took a loan. The word "take" is usually used but there can be contexts in which "get" is used.

    Did you try searching for earlier threads?

    The normal expression is to take out a loan.

    But take out does not fit here. You can use get or in exchange for.
    The money you get from the pawnbroker is in effect a loan.
