Thus, any situation that may lead to consideration variation this structural setting needs to be assessed.
It is therefore on the above premise that this study was conceived as a concerted response to assess the effects of building a credible and reliable synergy between Micro financing and small and medium enterprises development in Nigeria, required to strategically reposition the sector.
