Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

Marco Antonio's story

This is member Marco. He is married and has two children. His main business is selling tourist packages. He finds travelers and offers them tourist services directly. Marco is requesting a loan to purchase tourist entrance tickets for archeological centers and train tickets.

Marco is very grateful to Kiva for helping him with his business and with his children's education, so that they can have a better future. Marco has a long-term dream, which is to set up his own certified travel and tourist agency so that he can operate more formally.

Marco belongs to the communal bank Kukuli in the city of Cusco, Peru.
