Re: Written statement of borrowing/lending money?

My best friend (swiss) is in a financial crisis, and i am willing to help him by lending him some money (roughly one month of my salary)

As normal we want to take some measure as protection so that in case of problems later I am able to claim my right of the money. What I think is that we write a paper (in french) something like:

On date xxx, person aaa borrows xxx chf from person bbb.
Followed by two signatures.

Question: legally speaking, is this enough?
Your profile is a bit bare so it's not clear if something in German can help but anyway, here is an article from the Beobachter with specimen contract link . And here is one from Ktipp link . You may find an equivalend in a Swiss french consumer publication. In principle, anything in writing is good but of course it won't help if the borrower can't repay.
