The PSOJ AFFP Project

Small businesses are the backbone of any growing economy, yet in Jamaica, they struggle to grow. This is mainly due to lack of access to sufficient funding and business training. The aim of this project is to dramatically transform the ecosystem to foster the growth of small businesses in Jamaica.


We have identified 10 key factors required to create a healthy ecosystem for small and medium enterprises (SMEs).


Through workshops and bringing all stakeholders together, we can collaborate and break through the barriers that are hindering our growth and development. Let’s grow our small businesses, and make Jamaica, the land we love, the best place to live, raise a family and do business in.
