Mitzvah #194 - Lending money

It's a Mitzva to lend money to the poor.

This Mitzva is greater than giving charity.

If one has the money and refuses to lend it to the needy, one has sinned. (as per Devarim 15:9)

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always

Verse: "When you lend money to the poor..." (Shemot 22:24)
