What the Torah Says about Interest Free Loans.
I do it because being a guarantor is a fulfillment of the Torah's obligation to give charity, and I am committed to spending my money, as well as living my life, by a set of Jewish law rules that direct me to do things that I do not always like. This one has, so far, never hurt.* Being a guarantor is like shaking a lulav -- simple to do and makes God happy. It does not make me sad, but it could -- if someone defaults, then I will have to pay and that would make me sad. But, I do mitzvot even when it makes me sad!
Many years ago, I was a Free Loan borrower. Today, I am proud to pay it forward by being a guarantor. Enabling a borrower to receive a much needed JIFLA loan is a great feeling. I know that I am making a difference in my friend's financial stability. We talk regularly and he is looking forward to paying it forward when his JIFLA loan is repaid
