SMEs: Driving Growth and Creating Opportunities

South African SMEs play a vital role in our economy. They are the backbone of job creation, projected to generate 90% of new employment opportunities by 2030 (National Development Plan-2030, n.d.).
Contributing significantly to GDP growth, ranging from 60% to 80%,
SMEs pave the way for financial security and upliftment, breaking
the cycle of poverty for countless South Africans. However, despite
their importance, SMEs still face structural obstacles when it comes
to accessing financing.

Unlocking the Potential, Overcoming Barriers

Limited access to formal financial products restricts the growth potential of SMEs. Many entrepreneurs rely heavily on personal finances or resort to costly funding alternatives. Additionally, the market for SME funding is cluttered with funders, some of whom offer predatory terms. As a result, SMEs remain underserved, with a staggering credit gap estimated between R86 billion and R346.7 billion.
