 CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1    Background to the Study
    Small scale enterprises are regarded as the driving forces in economic development of any nation including Nigeria. They stimulate private ownership and entrepreneurial skills, generate employment, feasible and can adapt quickly to changing market demand and supply situation. If the small scale sector of any economy has the largest share of the population, then anything that happens to the sector positively or otherwise will definitely be of either great gains or great consequences to that nation. Jege (1990) posits that the earliest attempt by the government to develop small scale enterprises in Nigeria was in 1946 when seasonal paper No. 24 of 1945 on a ten years development and welfare plan was designed. This plan was presented to the legislative council of the time on December 13, 1945 and approved by the council on February 7, 1947. This paper authorized the establishment of Nigeria Local Development Board whose functions are to:
a.    Promote and develop village craft and industrial development of Nigeria products.
b.    Set up and operate experimental undertaking for the testing or processing Nigeria products.
c.    Approve other suitable project by the government.
The board primarily was to encourage and develop small scale enterprises within the country, which of course will help them grow to better and more efficient firms that will yield prospects to their proprietors as well as the development of the economy.
    According to Adekunle (2005), the importance of the small scale enterprises to economic development of any country whether developing or developed cannot be overemphasized. In Nigeria, evidence has shown that in 1986, Small scale enterprises accounted for 70% of all firms employing millions of Nigerians (First Bank of Nigeria report, 1987). By the end of 1979, over 80% of all establishment licensed under the factory act were small scale enterprises (Onwuala, 1987). This made the importance of this economic to be unelectable.
    Small scale enterprises in its widest sense implies the rapid response to the challenges of developing countries of which Nigeria is not an exceptional. Small Scale enterprises is established with due regards to the importance of available local raw materials in its environment because the challenges facing them are enormous. Small scale enterprises are the economic growth of any country, whether developed or developing have been widely acknowledged and acclaimed.
According to Uayatudeen (2001) across the world, small business have such crucial role to play in the development of an economy and that cannot be ignored. According to guidelines for accessing credit facilities for small scale enterprises in Nigeria by R.K. Moruka (2002), there is potential in small scale enterprises to create employment, reduce underemployment and poverty, utilize local raw materials, output expansion and transformation of indigenous technology. They constitute a strategic choice in industrialization and economic development even served as a new development aid model. All these programmes and policy initiatives were intended to transform the country from under developed state to a developed one which will guarantee a self-reliant future.
1.2    Statement of the Problem
    Small scale enterprises are not able to take business ventures with high yielding potential because of the numerous problems in obtaining adequate funds, this financial problems hampers all important objectives of the business its grow and survival.
    The economy at present need diversification and expansion. Despite the fact that government goals of encouraging economic growth along with decreasing employment and providing a well-trained labour force have been activity pursued since the reconstruction period of the civil war and the oil boom era. The nation however is still leasing ground in the area of unemployment, inflation economic stagnation and over/under supply of skilled labour force.
    The emphasis on the small business sector, was not encouraged until recently and this changing emphasis was caused by some setbacks presented by other sectors of the economy. It has been discovered that public sector alone failed to significantly encourage economic growth. Therefore, this study seeks to evaluate the promotion of small scale enterprises in Nigeria and their catalytic role in economic growth.
