SMME’s contribute to a third of South Africa’s employment. 2.8 million SMME’s contribute to more than half of South Africa’s GDP. Approximately half of South Africa’s small enterprises fail within two years of starting up, not only due to lack of finance but rather the inability and inexperience of their owners.
