Dividend Dollars at Work: Moxi Boutique

WRITTEN BY

Louisiana is propelled by small businesses and the passion that drives them. While the state is well-known for some large players in the oil and gas industry, small businesses account for 99.5% of all businesses in Louisiana. These are the businesses that call Louisiana home and form the backbone of our communities and economy. LWCC supports small businesses through accessible and reliable workers’ compensation coverage, allowing them to pursue their passions with greater peace of mind. Moxi Boutique in Baton Rouge is one of these businesses.

Meet Moxi

Jenee Esquival has always understood the importance of the right outfit and its ability to make or break a woman’s confidence. From a young age, she loved the way she could not only express her style, but also elevate her mood based on her clothing selections.

“I am passionate about helping women feel confident in how they present themselves through every stage of life,” says Jenee. “Fashion, clothing, and style have always been a way for me to express myself and feel like I'm at my very best.”

Embracing her talent, Jenee pursued a B.A. from LSU in digital advertising and fashion merchandising, all while working at a long-established local clothing boutique. In her senior year, she formulated a business plan for her own store. After a chance conversation with a family member led to the offer of a business loan, Jenee began working full time to bring her plan to life. Shortly after her college graduation, she was already well on her way to success. While she may have founded Moxi at a young age, it seems to have been her destiny all along.

Supporting Louisiana Women

For Jenee, Moxi is so much more than a place to buy fashionable, moderately priced clothing. It’s a chance to help other women find the confidence needed to reach their goals, even if that goal is just a fun night out.

Jenee explains, “When I help a mom of three find the perfect dress for a much-deserved night out, or that college grad find her perfect graduation outfit, or that young professional put together a look for her first job interview, that is my joy. That is why I do what I do.”

Through her store and her expertise, Jenee is having a positive impact on the lives of women in Baton Rouge and beyond. Although Moxi was still fairly new at the time of the COVID pandemic, and the difficulties facing many retail outlets seemed insurmountable, Jenee not only thrived but found new ways to help others, donating face masks to healthcare workers and providing food at Woman’s Hospital.

 

Reinvesting in Success with the LWCC Dividend Program

As Jenee has paved her own path to success, she has relied on her partnership with LWCC in a number of ways. While she’s never had to file a claim, she appreciates the security that her workers’ comp protection offers to both Moxi and its employees. It’s a business relationship she values and one that leaves her feeling that, while she may be investing in a policy, her policy provider is also investing in her - a fact that is nevermore evident than when she receives a dividend payment.

“As a small business owner, there are plenty of unexpected expenses that arise or bills that come in the mail,” Jenee says. “To have a company send back money is so refreshing! It’s always a happy day when the LWCC dividend comes in the mail. My colleague and I refer to the LWCC dividend as “pennies from heaven” because it catches us off guard every year, but it’s a nice little surprise.”

With the funds, Jenee reinvests in her business and in her dream of making other dreams come true. As time moves on, she will continue her work through Moxi to enhance the lives of other women, making them feel beautiful and empowered. And as she does so, LWCC will remain by her side, making sure those passions can remain her priority.

LWCC is dedicated to supporting small businesses throughout the state of Louisiana. With nearly 19,000 policyholders employing 50 or less employees, we understand the vital role that small businesses play within our economy and are committed to providing them with the support they need. LWCC’s mutual status provides its policyholders with benefits, resources, and services, including sharing in the financial success of the company through a dividend distribution.
