CHALLENGES (internal & external)…
1. Insufficient interest in & understanding of entrepreneurship
2. Inadequate understanding of cash flow, marketing,
management
3. Market access: private customers and government tenders
4. Gaps in the delivery of finance:
a. Availability - 200% collateral, delays kill opportunity
b. Inadequate monitoring leads to bad debt.
5. Business discipline, commitment and customer focus,
among existing entrepreneurs
Others: rentals, technology, equity, manpower, administrative procedures
