Small and Medium businesses in South Africa are at the core of providing employment to people from all walks of life and contribute greatly to our country’s economy; so why is it that corporates continue to grow and dominate in our market, whilst small business often struggle against the increasingly challenging odds?

SMME’s are put on the backburner

Financial institutions aren’t always eager to grant financial assistance to smaller businesses and start-ups. Credit extension goes mostly to established small businesses with a proven track record of 10 – 15 years, as this is less of a risk for financial institutions. Young entrepreneurs especially are struggling to obtain credit for their start-ups and with unemployment in south Africa at 27.7%, it is no surprise that a there is a burning need for innovative up and coming entrepreneurs in our country.

SMME’s face many obstacles

Some of the greatest obstacles Small and Medium Enterprises face are:

• Availability of working capital
• Access to corporate resources
• Guidance on route to market
• Assistance on logistical organisation

So what can be done to turn this situation around?
