Obligor is a position that comes from obligation.

It can apply to a person or an entity and indicates a party that has ‘promised’ to perform a certain act. To pay a debt, to provide a service, to transfer a title...

For example: an insurance company promises to pay a death benefit if a life insurance policy is in force at the time of the death of an insured. The insurance company, when the policy is signed, becomes the obligor, with the payment of a benefit in the case of death of the insured as an obligation.
