As of yet, neither 'loanee' nor 'loaner' has a slot in the English language. Perhaps they may be parts of the jargons (or terminilogies or technical terms) of a profession, but not as widely acceptable everyday English usage. We make a do with 'borrower' and 'lender' in the natural usage of the language.

This, however, is not to say that either or both of the words cannot gain an entry into the OED one day upon a coming future. Language is bound to change and adapt. Thank you.
