Marco Antonio's story

Marco Antonio is a member of the “QORICHUSPAS” Communal Bank in the city of Cuzco, Perü. He is a young father, who is married with two children. He sells general handicraft items and distributes them in the main tourist markets in the city.

At this time he is requesting a loan to purchase merchandise, such as sweaters, scarves, hats, ceramic ornaments, utilitarian objects and jewelry, in order to capitalize on the Christmas season. Marco Antonio is very grateful to KIVA for enabling him to support himself and get ahead in his business, which provides the main source of financial support for his family and the means to give his children a better education.
