Voucher for Technical Assistance

The Voucher for Technical Assistance Programme (VTA) is an initiative of the Development Bank of Jamaica (DBJ). VTA is a capacity building programme for Micro, Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (MSMEs) and is administered through Business Development Organizations (BDOs) such as the Jamaica Manufacturers’ Association (JMA).  Under the programme, services are offered to the MSME sector at a seventy (70) percent discount underwritten by the DBJ.

The JMA provides the following:

  • Mentorship and Coaching
  • Business Plan
  • Marketing and Promotional Plan
  • Market Research
  • Business Process Improvement
  • Training Programmes
  • Branding
  • Strategic Plans

The programme was developed to improve access to financing for MSMEs where poor financial record-keeping, inadequate business plans, management incapacities and inadequate business knowledge were among the significant impediments to accessing such financing. It is expected to promote the overall sustained development and success of small businesses.
