Background Of Study
The Small and Medium Enterprises Equity Investment Scheme (SMEEIS) is an initiative of the bankers’ committee comprising Managing Directors and Chief Executives of Banking Institutions in Nigeria, and it requires all licensed banks in the country to set aside 10% of their Profit Before Tax (PBT) annually for Small and Medium Enterprises
The core thinking behind the scheme is the recognition of the need to assist the manufacturing sector, which is acknowledged as the veritable vehicle for economic growth by meeting their financial requirements through private equity participation.
According to Ademola (2010), “despite the widely acknowledged role of small and medium scale enterprises in fostering economic growth and development, they have continued to face a variety of constraints”.
some of the challenges they face are inadequate infrastructural facilities, shortage of skilled manpower, high rate of enterprise mortality, low level of entrepreneurial skills, lack of conducive operating environment, restricted market access and cumbersome regulatory requirements for those that are quoted on the Nigerian Stock Exchange.
