Marco Antonio's story

Marco, 26, is single and lives in the city of Ica. He is a friendly, hard-working and enthusiastic man, with a strong desire to get ahead. Thanks to his own efforts and with help from his parents, Marcos is studying for a Law degree. In his spare time, he likes to play football with his friends, occasions often followed by a traditional bar-b-que.
Marco started his own tax business a few years ago. He works from early in the morning, for up to 10 hours a day, driving passengers to all parts of the city. He is happy with his progress and says that he has been successful because he treats his customers well.
Marco is grateful to Kiva lenders because he will be able to use their loans to buy a two-way radio, an investment that will allow him to connect and communicate with potential customers through the telephone network. He plans to continue working hard to meet his goal of starting a professional career.
