There's no simple answer - you have to d the best you can with what
you've got. Sometimes resizing (image->scale) by a factor of 3 can
help: open image->scale image, append
  * 3
to the width
and press tab, and GIMP will do the multiplication :) Use "cubic"

Then blur the now-larger image with radius 5. Then scale back down
(again cubic but you could use / 3 instead of * 3 to have GIMP do the
division) and then sharpen (filters->enhanve/>unsharp mask).

Technically what's going on is that this procedure will give the image
a wider number of pixel values - more greys - especially in 16 or 32
bit - and reduce some of the effects of jpeg artifacts.  <ale sire the
image is in greysvcale/grayscale or RGB mode first, not indexed, or it
won't help.
