Small business is an important component of the business environment of any country, and a significant contributor to employment creation, economic growth and societal well-being. Notwithstanding this widely acknowledged positive contribution, the growth and welfare of small business is often constrained by a range of factors such as the lack of capital/credit, and managerial expertise or appropriately skilled human resources, corruption, and many country specific considerations e.g. poor infrastructure.
