Hello, dear experts. I don't have much experience in building regression models, so sorry if this is too simple and not very interesting question.
Currently I'm working on the model that have to predict proportion of the debt returned by the debtor in some period of time. So the dependent variable can be any number between 0 and 1 with very high probability of 0 (if there are no payment) and if there are some payments it can very likely be 1 (all debt paid) although can be any number from 0 to 1.
Not having much knowledge in this area I can't think about any appropriate model and wasn't able to find much on the Internet. Can anyone give me some ideas about possible models, any information on-line and some R functions and packages that can implement it. Thank you in advance for any help.

Ihor.
