In the name of Allah, peace and prayer of Allah be upon His messenger, amma ba’du,
In Islam, theres no deed that is wasted, even just by giving a small aid to others, including lending money to others that is sure to be returned. While we know that lending money for a short period will not decrease our wealth, aside from the propaganda of the disbelievers about devaluation of money over time (time value of money).
However, mostly the creditor are worried when their money is in other people’s hand. And Allah the Most Generous never waste righteous deed of His slave; even though the only thing that he sacrifices is his feeling and anxiousness over the credit, Allah will replace it with His reward.
