Cuba's Catholic Church says it has launched classes aimed at training aspiring entrepreneurs to open and run small businesses permitted by the country's new program of economic reforms.
The Catholic Church has been barred from participation in the Communist-run nation's system of universal free education, despite requests that it be allowed to run schools as it does in other countries.
In 2010, President Raul Castro began opening Cuba's economy to limited forms of private enterprise, including sections of the real-estate and automobile markets.
