Growth and Transformation of Small Manufacturing Firms in Africa: Insights from Ghana, Kenya and Zimbabwe

This book is a synthesis of three country reports (Ghana, Kenya, and Zimbabwe) from a multi-country study on the growth and transformation of micro- and small-scale manufacturing firms in Africa. The book confirms that efforts expended in supporting small enterprises in Africa should be sustained. It not only adds to the rapidly burgeoning literature in Africa’s small enterprise sector, but pushes the discourse on the continent’s development to a new threshold. The main contribution of this book is to show how Africa can get its small firms to transform.
