ABSTRACT 

The study investigates the impact of small and medium scale industries on 

the Nigerian economy, spanning from 1986 to 2010. The study adopted 

Ordinary Least Square (OLS) Linear Specification model. Using unit root 

test, the work shows that small scale industries significantly contributed to 

the economic growth in Nigeria despite poor funding by commercial banks. 

The work recommends among others that government should improve its 

monetary policies so as to reduce to an acceptable level, the rate of 

interests charged by commercial banks as well as encouraging rural based 

industrialization, whereby investors are encouraged to establish small and 

medium scale industries that would be based entirely on local raw 

materials, machines and equipments.
