The foundation

Stichting Credit4Cuba is a non-profit foundation, founded in 2015 in the Netherlands by Marije Oosterhek and Dennis Schmidt. The foundation aims to make a difference for small Cuban entrepreneurs – the so called cuentapropistas – and supports small and growing enterprise development in Cuba. We offer network meetings, financial and practical management training, coaching and improved access to finance. We aim to setup an (mobile) hub in Cuba; a social environment where entrepreneurs can meet to exchange experiences and collaborate, creating new opportunities, joining efforts and developing their businesses.

We intend to empower the self-employed, creating positive social impact for the entrepreneur and Cuban society, always in close cooperation with local organisations and the (future) cuentapropistas. In Cuba we cooperate with ANEC and in the Netherlands we work in close cooperation with Ayani BV and Qredits. However, we are open to discuss partnerships with other organsiations (worldwide) that are interested to work with us and support our goal to make a difference.
