Batey Verde 1,2 Group's story

Jennifer lives in a "batey" (company town) in the province of La Romana in the Dominican Republic. Despite being a province with much tourism, La Romana has very poor areas such as the bateyes where most of the residents are Haitian immigrants.

Jennifer is a determined woman who worries about the well-being of her family. For three years, she has worked selling juices, sandwiches, men's and women's underwear, etc.

Economic necessity and lack of job opportunities make it necessary for women to have various businesses, as is the case with Jennifer, to increase their income and to be able to support their families.

Jennifer says that this type of business is very common in her area, but despite having a good clientele, and that her income has been increasing, Jennifer needs your support to be able to acquire new merchandise such as sugar, glasses, fruit, men's and women's underwear, etc., to be able to continue with her work.
