Jamaicans are among the most entrepreneurial in the world. This level of entrepreneurship according to the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) is even higher than that of China or the USA. In 2019, the Companies Office of Jamaica (COJ) reported more than 100 per cent increase in the number of business names being registered, with an average of 9,000 companies per year.
The National Housing Trust seeks to assist as many Jamaicans as possible with their homeownership goals. As a response, we are premiering our ‘Own Boss’ campaign which encourages self-employed persons to register with the NHT to access a range of benefits. You are your own boss, now be the boss of your own home!
