Cuba wasn't exactly cut off from Soviet aid, throughout the entire Cold War they had as much assistance with materiel as with KGB's spycatchers.

Though most of Russian assistance went into Vietnam and Afghanistan - I suspect that US actually tripped the wars on both of the other side of the world because they didn't want the giant cigar on their front door to start smoking.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.
