A loan of $725 helped to buy a saxophone to replace his existing one.

Jimmy's story

Jimmy is 22 years old. He lives with his parents and his siblings. For more than 4 years he has been playing in a band which plays native music. He generally works weekends and plays his own instrument which is a saxophone. He plays at social events which are always taking place in his town and the surrounding areas. Thanks to the profits that he makes, he can study at university and cover his expenses. He is studying engineering. Jimmy likes his work since he has always played a number of musical instruments since he was very young. At first he only played as a hobby but today it is his source of income. However, his great wish is to become a professional.

This is Jimmy's 2nd loan with MFP. He is happy to know that he has this financial support and he enjoys being a member of his community bank because all the members are responsible people who are very supportive of each other. He is grateful to those who will help to fund his loan because it will be very useful to him in making progress in his business. He will use his loan to buy an instrument which is of better quality than the one he has now.
