Looking at recent history, there has never been more pressures bearing down on small businesses. Rents have escalated, loans with the bank have increased dramatically because of higher lending rates, CUC bills are the highest they have ever been and people are naturally tightening their belts and spending less. We at the Caymanian Times understand the difficulties facing small businesses currently because we are ourselves a small business. However, we are guided by some basic principles which means - even though we are small - we are always committed to helping Cayman’s small businesses improve. It is part of who we are and what we stand for.
So, we have decided to run a new series focusing on small businesses. If you are a small business that needs some extra publicity to help make your goods or services more visible, please get in touch with us. We hope to run our new series weekly, featuring a different small business. Small business owners will get a write up on their business plus a few photos to really help put the spotlight on what they do. There will be no charge for this feature. We want our small businesses to succeed because they are the backbone of our economy.
If you are a small business owner – maybe you own a hairdressing boutique, a clothes shop, a car garage, a small dive shop or a small restaurant – please get in touch with us at email@example.com and we will do our best to give you that added push that you need to help your business grow. From small acorns grow mighty oaks.
