Therefore, this research adopted the descriptive research survey. This study used secondary data and the data analyzed in this study relate to aggregate industry data obtained from central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) statistical bulletin and other publications.

Findings from our field study indicated  that microfinance banks total asset (MFBTA) have a positive and statistically significant impact on industrial production (IGDP) which implies that microfinance banks have adequate assets that have positive and significant impact on industrial production, microfinance banks’ loans to SMEs and microfinance banks total assets have negative impact on the industrial sector production. The study recommend among others that microfinance banks are; microfinance Bank directors and regulators are advised to initiate and sustain policy measures to provide substantial financing to small and medium scale enterprises. In particular, efforts should be directed at providing necessary regulatory support to microfinance banks to strengthen them to serve as engines of growth to SMES and that microfinance banks should be reformed to enable them have the financial strength to provide needed funds to SME’s.
