Yes, specially if they really need it. Though sometimes it becomes a gift.
Lend means the expectation of getting it back. No. Give yes, absolutely.
One should help friends in their difficult times without expecting anything in return. This is what I always do.
No, once you do your relationship will stand a good chance of changing for the worse especially if your friend is slow to pay, only partially pays, or never repays.
I recently read a story about a woman who makes over 6 figures a year and bit by bit, friends and family approached her for money. Now she pays bills for her friends and family and it is now her that is suffering financially, on SIX figures. She is single and has no kids. Friends are friends, not children with an allowance. And family should be considered friends (only) when they want you to lend.
A lot would depend on the nature of the friend and of the friendship, how much money, why there's a need and how important it is to get the money back.
Borrowing lunch money has different implications than borrowing rent.
An unpaid loan can hurt a friendship unless you loan w/ the expectation that you may never see that money again and thats ok
