Micro small and medium enterprises (MSMEs), are critical to socio- economic development and contribute over 60 percent of GDP in emerging economies. The MSMEs play significant roles in jobs and income generation for low income people, thereby fostering economic growth, social stability and contributing to the development of a dynamic private sector. Bank lending should be one of the most common source of external finance for many MSMEs and entrepreneurs. However, MSMEs rely heavily on traditional debt to fulfil their start-up, cash flow, and investment needs in the pursuit of a stable and sustainable economy. This is because the sector has experienced difficulties in accessing funds from the banks because of their inability to tender tangible collateral (immovable assets) for securing loans. Given the current macro-economic realities and the important role MSMEs, it is expedient that financial institutions deepen competencies in movable asset financing. Lenders need to adopt new strategies to diversify their portfolios by funding productive activities through MSME lending and increasing SME's contribution to the Nigerian economy.
