Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are powerful drivers of economic and social change. They comprise the majority of businesses in most markets, creating over 86% of jobs. However in developing countries, basic barriers exist that prevent local SMEs from accessing formal markets. This leaves people unemployed, creates dependency on foreign aid and can contribute to instability.
