According to Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency (SMEDAN), there are over 17.2 million struggling micro, small and medium scale enterprises in Nigeria. These businesses struggle majorly because they lack skills and capacity to access information and resources that will help them grow their businesses. Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial nerve center, is home to many of such businesses. As a result, economic growth has been adversely affected and this has led to societal challenges such as youth unemployment, poverty and a increasing crime rate.
