Supporting Small Business in Cuba: Recommendations for Private and Public Sector Leaders

March 31, 2011

Written in collaboration with the Cuba Study Group and with assistance from the Center Financial Inclusion at ACCION International, this white paper outlines recommendations for private- and public-sectors leaders to support the development of a small-business and self-employment sector in Cuba. In light of the ongoing economic reform process in Cuba, the report outlines specific steps that can be taken by the Cuban government, the U.S. government, NGOs, and foundations to assist independent small and micro-entrepreneurs in Cuba. The report comes only days before the Sixth Communist Party of Cuba, scheduled for later this month.
