Jimmy's story

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.
