Marcos Antonio's story

Marcos, 28, lives in Ica with his wife and beloved young son, who is their reason for living. Marcos is friendly, hardworking, and enthusiastic. He and his wife dedicate all their energy to providing for their family. Marcos began working at an early age and lacked the money to study agronomy, though he would have liked to have done so. In his free time, he likes to play soccer with his friends and occasionally cook a delicious, traditional fried rabbit to share with his family.

On his initiative and with dedication, Marcos drives a taxi. He offers service in his city every day for about 12 hours. He thinks the business is prospering because he knows the areas where passengers are easy to find. Marcos is grateful to the Kiva lenders, whose help will allow him to replace parts and do general maintenance on his taxi. This will let him keep working, servicing his customers, and striving to achieving his great dream of having a car rental business.
