To put it simply, he wants to get rich quick, without having to put any effort in.
While pan-handling passengers on a train, Jacques bumps into an old school friend "I was second-bottom of our class," the man recalls, leaving us in no doubt who occupied the bottom spot who has transformed his life, becoming a wealthy CEO, and also his physical appearance, thanks to cheap plastic surgery performed in a Bulgarian clinic.
Jacques gets the brainwave of acting as a travel agent for those who wish to go under the knife in the former Communist country at a cut-price rate, but the trouble is he lacks the funds to start up his business, following a misunderstanding at a print shop that sees him charged for 10, business cards rather than the hundred he intended to order.
In the poor souls Monique has taken under her wing, Jacques sees the gullible suckers he needs to make his scheme work. Since his breakout role in the Oscar winning The Artist, Dujardin has struggled to find a part worthy of his talents, but in Jacques he's landed the role of his life.
Dujardin displays a Cary Grant like ability to make us forget how much of a movie star he looks, allowing us to believe that someone so superficially handsome and charming could be so socially inept and so completely lacking in self-awareness.

In terms of its gags per minute ratio, it might be the most laugh-laden film since the s heyday of the Zucker Brothers. So deep is their well of comedy that at times they'll present a punchline through dialogue while a visual gag simultaneously plays out over a character's shoulder, making a second viewing essential to catch every gag.
