Hi,

you may want to take a look at the articles Sponsor your spouse, partner or children and Determine your eligibility – Sponsor your spouse, partner or children.

Generally spoken, yes, you can sponsor a spouse even if you have a loan, but there are some more restrictions that may apply. For example, if a spouse or partner sponsored you, you now cannot sponsor a new spouse or partner within five years of becoming a permanent resident.
It's difficult to give you a definite answer without knowing more about your background. The loan will not keep you from sponsoring your wife, but other factors might.

NO, it doesn't have to be declared and is no bar to sponsorship.
