inserting a file into another file

Hello, i have 2 files with the same number of lines and i want to have the first file entries to be inserted into the 2nd file lines but infront of them , i.e
file1:
myname
hisname
hername

file2:
=fine
=mine
=pine

the output file should be like this:

output:
myname=fine
hisname=mine
hername=pine
