"The Next Big Thing"
The “what is the next big thing in Africa” is usually the question posed in conferences and talks across the continent, not to sound like a prophet, but the answer is pretty obvious, it is SMEs!
Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) play a major role in most economies, particularly in developing countries. Formal SMEs contribute up to 45 percent of total employment and up to 33 percent of national income (GDP) in emerging economies.
A World Bank Group study suggests there are between 365-445 million micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in emerging markets: 25-30 million are formal SMEs; 55-70 million are formal micro enterprises; and 285-345 million are informal enterprises. Moving informal SMEs into the formal sector can have considerable advantages for the economy.
In this regard, there is the need to have all SMEs on one platform, for ease of access, therefore we present Small African Business Network!
