    If you lend something, that means that you give that thing to somebody for a short time. Borrow is the opposite. So, if you come to school without a pencil, I might lend you a pencil -- and then you would be borrowing it from me.

    Occasionally, some native speakers say "lend" when they mean "borrow", but of course you're not allowed to do that. :)

    In this case, 'lends' is correct.
