1.1       Background to the Study

The small scale businesses have a very important and effective role in developed countries generally and in developing countries especially because it is considered the backbone of their economies. Rajan (2013) states that the definition of small scale businesses may vary from county – to – country, year – to – year, from period to period and from time to time according to the level of economic development reached in a country. Sometimes it is defined in terms of number of workers employed and on the use of electric power supply and also in terms of investment made.

            Despite of these small scale businesses when established varies in its mode of formation, its sizes, its organizational set up, and in its activity. The reason for this is because the type chosen by each individual operator will depend on the financial capability to manage such business.  Small scale business forms the bedrock of the economic growth of every nation. This is because no nation can achieve a viable economic growth and development without the establishment of small scale business. The entrepreneurship which is part of small scale business is very relevant to the empowerment of the citizens for sustainable development. It gives substantial opportunities for the assumption and the use of local raw materials for vertical and horizontal linkages. Therefore, it has been said that the growth and development of small scale business would improve the economy and welfare of Nigerians.

Also, new businesses bring new and improved products and services thereby increasing competition and challenging existing business to improve their performance. Since 1960s to date, small scale business have been given due recognition especially in the developed nations for playing very important roles towards posturing accelerated economic growth, development and stability within several economics. However, it appears that, considering the enormous potentials of the small scale business sector and despite the acknowledgement of its immense contribution to sustainable economic development, its performance still falls below expectation in many developing countries most especially Nigeria. This is because sectors in these developing countries have been bedeviled by several factors such as management ability militating against its performance and leading to an increase in the rate of small scale businesses failure. These factors include the unfavorable and very harsh economic; conditions resulting from unstable government policies, strained by the difficulty in accessing credits from banks and other financial institutions; high operating cost, lack of transparency and corruption.

Small scale business generally have weak capital base since majority of them are either sole- proprietorship or partnerships. They have no opportunity to draw money from the capital market as big companies do. Consequently, the only options is to borrow money and at times with unfavourable term. Small scale business operators rely primarily on ‘own equity’ bank financing, trade credit and cease financing to finance their business. But before going into sources of financing, it is important that the potential investor has an idea of an estimated level of fund needed for his particular type of business. He needs to count how much money of his own (equity) he is prepared to put into the business  before he thinks of borrowing and other financial assistance. Budget becomes absolute necessity. Proper budget helps to ensure that proper controls and evaluative procedures are established in a business.

1.2       Statement of the Problems

Nigeria is classed as a developing countries among the countries of the world based on their economic status. Although the country is blended with varieties of human and material resources but very poor in the management of those resources. The country is however dependent upon import goods and services on daily basis, so as to meet human wants.

Problems like electric power supply, poor business financing, poor government policies among others have been the major barriers to economic advancement in the country. However, the role of small scale business in the nation’s economic development remains sacrosanct, if the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the country will increase. Advancement in the SME will therefore boost the GDP and the nation’s economy.

            It was observed by the researcher tha  most of the small scale business have a lot of challenges which do not allow them to make profit and part of the challenges of the issue of financing of the small scale business

Financing of the SME is a limiting factor to the development of SME. The problems range from high interest rate, on loans, difficulty in loan assessment, poor attitude to loan repayment among others.
