Some 150 small business operators will gather Tuesday and Wednesday to show their products at the Gran Feria Nacional Empresarial/IMAS in the Antique Aduana on Calle 23 in east San José. As the title suggests, the fair is sponsored by the Instituto Mixto de Ayuda Social. The fair will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The institute said that the free event will feature all types of creations by the small businesses. The idea is to promote the work of the thousands of small operations that are growing in Costa Rica, said the institute. Some receive aid from the institute.
Fernando Marín Rojas, institute president, said that 8,822 families have benefited from programs set up by his agency. These include opportunities for financing, training and aid with access to conventional banking.
