Government of Jamaica

Medium, Small and Micro Enterprises (MSMEs)

MSMEs account for 90% of jobs in the Jamaican economy

The Government is actively working to implement legislation, policies and initiatives aimed at unlocking the growth potential of the Micro, Small and Medium-sized Enterprise (MSME) sector. Critical to all of this, is the creation of an enabling business environment for MSMEs, and reduction of the impediments they face. This thrust, though led by the Government, also requires support from the private sector.


The MSME Resources Search Tool provides entrepreneurs of Jamaican micro, small and medium enterprises a digital resource to access up-to-date information on initiatives, programmes and services available to them through various entities who focus on the growth and development of the MSME.

Inside users will find relevant initiatives, programmes and services from both private and public sectors… all in one concise location and categorised across the following nine (9) subject areas:

  • Empowering Business Environment
  • Business Development Support & Training
  • Affordable MSME Financing
  • Entrepreneurship and Innovation & Technology in Business
  • Social Entrepreneurship
  • Women in Business
  • Youth in Business
  • Supporting Persons with Disability in Business
  • Supporting the Creative Sector in Business

A search can also be filtered by specific criteria including by:

  • Audience
  • Industry
  • Purpose
  • Type of Financing

Please check back often. New initiatives are added and updates are made as soon as they arise.

The Ministry

Welcome to the official website of the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries.
