Jimmy's story

Jimmy is 22 years old and he lives with his parents and siblings in a house that is owned by his parents. He has been playing his own musical instrument with a band for more than four and a half years. He works generally on the weekends because it is during these days that celebrations and social events take place in his community and surrounding areas. This business allows him to go to university and to pay for his engineering studies. He loves his work because since he was very young he has been playing various musical instruments. At first it was only a pass-time and his dream was to be an artist but now he considers it to be his primary source of support. This is his third loan with MFP (Kiva Field Partner). He says that his experience with a communal bank has helped him improve his financial administration, for which he is thankful. He gives his word to be very responsible with his payments, as he has always done so. With the loan that he requests he will invest in the purchase of another musical instrument.
