Small business enterprises was defined by the Central bank of Nigeria in its guideline that it is any business organization with an annual turnover of less than five hundred thousand naira. (CBN Guide (2009)).

Small Business Enterprise may be seen as a business which is independently owned and managed by an individual or family and which does not dominate its relevant market segment of interest (Griffin and Ebert, 1999).
