Jimmy
Jimmy is 32 years old and lives in his parents' home with his parents and his younger siblings. Together they all seek to make progress every day.

Since he was very young, this hard-working man has been repairing electronic equipment (television sets, computers, refrigerators, etc.) in his workshop which is located in his home. His passion for this trade started when he was small as he used to watch his uncles carrying out this work. He learned all the skills he needed from watching them. Jimmy really enjoys his work. He starts work very early in the morning and keeps going until evening, from Monday to Friday. Over time, he has attracted a large number of customers who seek him out for the quality of his work and the confidence that they have in his work. In addition to this work, for four years he has also worked as a sound engineer for a company that provides sound and light services. He does not rest. However, he has a lot of plans for the future such as setting up his own company offering sound services.

Jimmy plans to invest the money he is requesting in purchasing materials (optical lenses, zoom lenses, cell phones, etc.) that he needs to improve his business since he would like to buy in bulk so that he doesn't have to travel to the city so often to buy his products - it is quite a long way.

This is the first loan that Jimmy has had with MFP and he pledges to make his repayments on time since he doesn't want to let down the people who have made this money possible as it will allow him to continue working in search of progress.

Jimmy, de 32 años, vive en la casa de sus padres en compañía de ellos y de sus hermanos menores; juntos buscan progresar cada día.

Desde muy joven este trabajador hombre se dedica a la reparación de equipos electrónicos (televisores, computadoras, refrigeradoras, entre otros) en su taller que esta ubicado en su vivienda. Su pasión por este oficio empezó cuando era pequeño pues observaba como sus tíos realizaban esta labor, y así mirando aprendió todas las técnicas necesarias. Le gusta mucho su trabajo pues empieza desde muy temprano y se prolonga hasta la noche, de lunes a viernes, además el tiempo le ha permitido captar cantidad de clientes que lo buscan por la calidad y confianza del trabajo que desempeña. También paralelamente a esta labor, desde hace cuatro años, durante los fines de semana se desempeña como sonidista para una empresa que presta el servicio de sonidos y luces, por lo que no tiene descanso, pero tiene muchos planes para el futuro como el de instalar su propia empresa de servicio de sonido.

Jimmy tiene planeado invertir el dinero solicitado en la compra de materiales (lentes ópticos, zoom, celulares, entre otros) que necesita para mejorar su trabajo, pues quiere comprar en cantidad para no ir tantas veces a la ciudad donde los venden pues esta algo alejada.

Es el primer crédito que tiene con MFP y promete pagar sus cuotas puntualmente, pues no quiere quedar mal con las personas que hicieron posible el dinero que le permitirá continuar trabajando en busca del progreso.
