Micro Investment Development Agency


The Micro Investment Development Agency (MIDA) was established in 1991 as a limited liability company to assist the Government of Jamaica in taking a focused approach to the development of the micro enterprise sector.

MIDA has a mandate to promote sustainable growth in the micro enterprise sector through the provision of financing and financial services. Since inception, the agency has raised some $650.0 million for the sector. From this pool of funds the agency has provided approximately $3 billion in credit to finance over 33,000 businesses while creating and/or sustaining some 56,000 part time and full time jobs.

The Agency’s vision is to build a revolving pool of startup capital and cheap credit funds to assist new and existing Micro, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (MSMEs) to create wealth and generate employment within the sector and to act as fund managers for the Government of Jamaica credit funds earmarked for on-lending to the Micro, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (MSMEs) through a network of existing Approved Lending Agencies with solid records of success, progressive and competitive thinking.
