Hosanna Jabneel's story

Sra. Hosanna was born in the Mexican city of Frontera in Coahuila, but she has lived in Piedras Negras for 29 years, almost her whole life. She is a responsible woman, a wife and the mother of an 8-year old boy. She has worked in a pharmacy for 5 year and is the manager there now. Her husband has worked as a "trailero" [don't know--Spanglish for a trucker, perhaps?] for several months. She and her husband have learned what it takes to get ahead and they have supported each other through thick and thin, always with the idea of what is best for their son.
Sra. Hosanna is applying to KIVA for a loan that she will use to make improvements to her kitchen. She wants to create a larger space to work because her kitchen is a bit small and she needs more space. She has been expanding the house, little by little, to create a better home for her son.
