Insuranceopedia explains Obligor

The term is most often associated with a person who owes money to someone and has been obliged by contract to pay it on time along with the accumulated interest. It can, however, be applied in other cases. A distributor may, for example, have a contract with a seller (the obligor) that prevents them from selling their rival's products.
