NRPB Information booth for the Enterprise Support Project at this year’s SMILE event!!

The National Recovery Program Bureau (NRPB) will be present at this year’s St. Maarten Innovations, Initiatives & Industries Link-Up Event (SMILE) with an information booth for micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) that want to learn more about the Enterprise Support Project (ESP). SHTA’s SMILE Event will be held at the University of St. Martin (USM) on Friday, March 25 and Saturday, March 26, 2022. This was announced today by the NRPB in conjunction with the St. Maarten Hospitality & Trade Association (SHTA). The ESP contributes to Sint Maarten’s economic recovery through direct financial assistance and entrepreneurial training initiatives. The project offers various grant/loan packages in partnership with financial institutions, such as commercial banks and social lenders. Currently, the ESP collaborates with Windward Islands Bank (WIB), Banco di Caribe and Qredits.

The information booth will allow for a swift assessment of a company’s eligibility for financial support, and it will provide guidance on how to start the application process. The ESP team will also use SMILE as a platform to give an update on the project’s status.
