New guide to finance schemes for small tourism businesses in Jamaica 

A new guide to the finance schemes available to small and medium-sized tourism businesses in Jamaica has been launched as part of the TUI Care Foundation’s Big Up Small Business initiative, which is delivered by the Travel Foundation.

The free guide is part of a planned series of resources and training opportunities from Big Up Small Business designed to support small tourism businesses to recover and thrive. A quick reference table at the beginning of the guide gives information about finance schemes available at a glance and is followed by detailed information about each scheme, including interest rates, who is eligible, as well as how to apply. The guide can be accessed at: www.bigupsmallbusiness.org

Big Up Small Business aims to create new opportunities for small-business entrepreneurs in Jamaica so that more people can benefit from tourism. The project, which is supported locally by the Tourism Product Development Company (TPDCo), was launched in 2019 and has been paused for several months due to the COVID-19 pandemic but is now back up and running.

The finance guide is part of a range of support offered by the project, including recovery workshops and a digital marketing guide planned for the spring.
