  1. It's a biblical mitzvah to lend to a Jew who is need of borrowing money [1] even if he is rich but doens't have the money right now. Additionally it's a greater mitzvah than giving tzedaka because the receiver isn't embarrassed. [2]
  2. There's a mitzvah to lend out objects that another Jew is in need of borrowing. [3]
