Jamaica

The Government of Jamaica, through the Ministry of Finance and Public Service, has provided J$1B through the DBJ’s MSME GO-Digital Loan to boost the adoption of cutting-edge technology among MSMEs in Jamaica.
The purpose of the loan is to :
• Acquisition of laptops, smartphones and portal POS machines

• Digital transformation services
• E-commerce
• Digital payment solutions
• Cyber security
• Digital productivity tools
• Digital business applications such as accounting software, HR and payroll system

A maximum grace period on the principal of 3 months may be facilitated where the project plan justifies it. The DBJ will fund up to 90% of the project cost with the MSME providing a 10% contribution. This programme is accessible through our participating financial institutions.
