A loan of $1,125 helped to buy a motorcycle.


Marco Antonio's story

Marco lives in the city of Pisco. He’s a friendly young man who very much wants to get ahead. Because of his limited economic resources he was only able to study a technical career which is heavy machinery driving. However, because he needed to support his family he got a job working as a security guard in a small firm in his city and with the fruits of his labor he’s able to help his mother with household expenses. Marco works about 10 hours daily and believes he’s doing well because he’s responsible.

Marco’s very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support they’ve give him he ‘ll be able to buy a motorcycle so he can get from place to place and carry out his watchman chores while saving money on transportation costs. In this way, he’ll have a vehicle with which to do his work better and he’ll continue to be able to strive toward making his greatest dream reality: to have his own firm.
