echo "`cat file_1`,`cat file_2`" > file_3

That solution will work if the two files contain only one line each. I know that is what Alice literally said, but she may be looking for a solution when her files contain multiple lines. So I would suggest paste:
paste -d, file1 file2 > file3

Assuming you run ksh or bash (and sh...I think)
try...

touch ./newfile
for fn in aaa bbb ccc ddd eee fff
do
cat $fn >> ./newfile
done
