Why it MATTERS?
With an African working age population of over 50%, small businesses remain the primary job creation engine and source of livelihood, accounting for over 80% of firms and 60% to 70% of employment. Despite the role they play; these enterprises are economically fragile with over 70% of them failing within 5 years mainly due to low sales/ revenue, informal operations and lack of data.
