Cuba’s Self-employed Jubilant with a Small Victory

On December 6th, Cuba’s self-employed workers woke up to news that could mark many of their personal and professional lives in the future: several of the 20 legal provisions that refined the Self-Employment Law, which came into effect on December 7th, had been modified by the Council of Ministers.

The amendments included being able to exercise more than one activity. New licenses will also be granted for 26 out of the 27 professions that had been suspended, computer programming being the only exception.

On the other hand, food establishments will be able to have over 50 seats to serve customers and the amount their income they can have in cash on hand has been increased to 35% to cover smaller expenses and unexpected events, and this doesn’t have to be deposited in a bank account.
