A loan of $575 helped to pay for his university education.


Jimmy's story

Jimmy is 24 years old. He is a hardworking youth who lives with his mother, Ricardina.

He works to support his mother, because his father works in another city and visits them once a month. In this way he started to study and work at the same time. In the morning he continues his university studies in psychology, and on the weekends he plays in an orchestra, as he's been playing the saxophone since he was very young. "In my musical engagements I earn a lot, with which I can pay for my education and also help with some household expenses," he says. His goal is to save enough to buy an automobile so he could work as a taxi driver, because his university expenses will increase over the years. He knows that he will achieve this, because he is a hardworking youth who is very intelligent.

He belongs to the communal bank "Azapampa," and this his fourth loan from MFP. He appreciates the support provided, and also promises to make his payments on time. The members of his communal bank are responsible and supportive people.

Jimmy will invest the money he is requesting to pay for his studies at the university.
