Communist-run Cuba in August lifted a ban on private companies in place since 1968, a move that has Cubans scrambling for business opportunities. Thanks to that reform, the Garcia brothers, aka the "ice cream guys", say they hope to move their small, home-based operation, cobbled together with patched up old equipment, to a larger facility and increase their workforce of 12 to 30 or more, says Henry Garcia. "My whole life I've dreamt of having an ice-cream factory, a business. It was just a dream, an image in my head that I never imagined could actually happen. Now, thanks to the government and the party this new law has sprung up and it is no longer a dream, it’s a reality. Now I have to put my back into it." The government has already registered their "Helados Cid" operation as a private enterprise – one of around 900 small- and medium-sized businesses to have been incorporated since September. In one of the biggest economic transformations since Fidel Castro’s Revolution, Cuba is banking on the creation of hundreds - even thousands - of small businesses to help the economy rebound from the devastating impact of the health crisis, soaring inflation and crippling U.S. sanctions. The new rules mean they can now operate with foreign currency, obtain credit and sell ice cream to hotels, state-run shops and even online. But there are still plenty of hoops to jump through. Regulations require companies to go through the state to engage in foreign trade, prohibit entrepreneurs from owning more than one company, and cap individual firms at 100 employees. Reuters spoke to one business owner who managed to purchase machinery from Europe needed to run a dried fruit company, but he says he fears he’s an “exception” to the rule. Imported goods were already scarce due the U.S. sanction, but the health crisis cut deeply into "convertible" currency flows needed purchase needed items from abroad.
