Jenifer lives in Batey Lechería in the Dominican Republic. Batey is the Haitian word for village. The older generations in Batey Lechería are Haitian.
Life for Haitians in the Dominican is difficult. Unless they have sufficient funds to start their own business, which most do not, they are passed over for work because of their nationality. Dominicans prefer to hire their own countrymen.
Jennifer lives with her dad, her mom passed away 2 years ago. Her dad works as farmer in the village.
She attends public school and is in 3rd grade. Her favorite color is white.
