CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND TO STUDY

Ten percent of the profit before tax made by bonus is directed towards financing Small and Medium Scale Industries in Nigeria (SMES) as directed by the Federal Government through the Apex body in the country's financial institution - Central Bank of Nigeria CBN. This has come to stay as a policy, brought forth as a result of the overwhelming impact of this sector to a country's economic development as evidenced in the tracks of nations like: Brazil, Argentina, India, China, Malaysia amongst others.

Financing this sector of the economy adequately by these nations has moved them forward economically. Newly industrialized economy (NIE) were basically shown the way forward by throwing their weight behind small and medium scale industry.

Many more policies have been signed into law by different governments to improve this sector. Lately, we have the economic reform: National Empowerment for Economic

Development Strategies (NEEDS) by the Obasanjo Administration and one of its main objectives is the development of SMEs.

Nevertheless, not every small business floated either individually or with the Government's aid has come to stay as inadequate marketing skill-market orientation practice among other factors is set to ruin its continuity.

Continued rising and disappearance of small businesses would be seen over a long period of time until critical issues like marketing orientations are analyzed and consciously laid in the minds of business managers and entrepreneurs. This skill would help keep the industry live and prevent early demise if any at all.
