Like most parents, Affirm customer Nathaniel’s world is his son and he wanted nothing more than to push him to try his best. He made deal with his son that if he got on the honor roll and practiced playing baseball, he would get an "amazing" birthday present as a reward.
Seeing his son race to baseball practice every day and tirelessly complete his tutoring to make the honor roll was an incredible joy in Nathaniel’s life.
“It was awesome. It hit home hard and made me and my son both appreciate how hard [my son] worked," Nathaniel said.
Nathaniel’s job is more morally gratifying than financially. He volunteers at a learning center and is the coach of his son’s little league team.
“I’m always looking for the best possible deal and Affirm made things affordable,” He said.
Nathaniel made good on his promise and used Affirm to purchase a brand new motorbike for his son’s birthday.
Every loan that is taken out has the potential to help a dad spend more time with his family. For Nathaniel, making a difference is spending quality time with his son and volunteering at the learning center. For Affirm, its providing opportunities for families and young professionals to finance their loans. As for us as employees, it's about working hard every day to impact people's lives.
By impacting people's lives and making a difference every day, we're giving our customers the opportunity to do the same in others.
