Perhaps since the end of January 2016 to the end of the first quarter, around 30,000 to 35,000 new jobs could have been created, since the monthly average has been about 10,000 jobs posts.
In the Dominican labor market, specific aspects such as sustainability, quality and reliability of the jobs created and to be created are currently questioned.
Examinations are performed to define whether they are quality jobs, if they are sustainable and even if they are well paid. Credit actions initiated by the Government through Banca Solidarity, the Agricultural Development Fund (FEDA) and Fundación Reservas, have enabled the creation and strengthening of a little over 200,000 jobs, according to the figures provided by those entities.
A good proportion of these jobs correspond to the agricultural area and MSMEs, which are usually closely connected to the informal economy. Statistics provided by the Government shows that, via credits of Fundación Reservas, 61,000 jobs have been generated through surprise visits, another 100,000 related to financing of FEDA and via Banca Solidaria 52,000 jobs.
