Jimmy is 21 years old, and is the one on the right in the picture. He is known as being a hard-working and simple person who is always looking for success. Jimmy is single and lives with his parents in Cayambe, Pichincha province.

Jimmy works as a musician. He plays in an orchestra that his family has been involved in for a long time. This is the first time he has asked for a loan from Fodemi. He will use the loan to buy a new saxophone, because his current one (as can be seen in the picture) is in bad shape and does not have quality sound.

Jimmy dreams of succeeding little by little and forming his own orchestra to have more independence with his earnings.
