Nicole, an unemployed, 18-year-old single mother who lives in Santo Domingo, is waiting until her son is older to have another child so she can provide a good life for herself, her son and her future family. Initially Nicole sought family planning services in the local public center but they did not have the method she wanted, and without health insurance she couldn’t access services through the private sector because of the high costs. However, through the PRJKT RUBY Fund and the Red Segura clinic operated by PSI’s independent network member in Latin America, Society for Family Health, Nicole was able to receive comprehensive family planning counseling as well as the method best suited to her needs, at no cost.
