CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Banks as business concern must make profits in order to study in business. They usually have a range of multi-product services, which they render to the public, which are of crucial concern to the public, enterprises, depositors and regulatory authorities. The main operation of banks is the lending of fund to other sectors of the economy through funds deposited by depositors. According to A. N Nwankwo (1987:164) he stated that: Lending is considered effective of it successfully resources the bankers obligation of maximum profitability to share holders and maximum liquidity to the depositors. This is because highly profitable lending, which also ensures liquidity for depositors may always be effective. Lending for commerce proposed may be considered effective in the profitability  and liquidity sense but may be ineffective in terms of maximum contribution to economic development. Similarly, lending to small-scale enterprises may be considered ineffective in the development sense. This effective lending in a development economy like Nigeria may be defined as that equation of lending which maximums the objective of liquidity and profitability and the economy’s objectives of development. In Nigeria, the need for small-scale enterprises when was not fully realized until the early eighties when government started laying emphasis on direct credit to small-scale enterprises. This was one of the main objectives of the economic reconstruction programme under the structural Adjustment Programme (SAP), which was meant to boast the level of economic activities in the economy. Under the monetary policy, the banks are to allocate 20% of their loan-able funds to small-scale enterprises. The banks that do not comply are to be penalized by the Central Bank Of Nigeria (CBN). However, the banks have undergone a lot of problem in gravity such loans.

They includes:

  1. High rate of default
  2. Amount spent of research and other portfolios as highly compared to the profit got from interest on the loans

iii. Most applicants do not have any form of collateral.

All these factors have contributed to the low level of bank lending to small-scale enterprises. Although, government policies in the terms of economic development is to stimulate the establishment and growth of small-scale enterprises, which contributes both directly and indirectly to economic growth and to enable Nigeria to participate on an increasing extent in the ownership. The government of Nigeria enterprises a same as of balanced growth and to payment positions, It is against that background that the expansion of banks lending to small-scale enterprises can be fully appreciated.
