Thus, they constitute a strategic choice in industrialization and economic development, even served as a new development aid model. In view of growing unemployment and poverty including the working poor in Nigeria, the indignity poverty inflicts on and threat to the survival of human kind, no efforts should be spared in nurturing, supporting and sustaining Small Scale Enterprises in Nigeria.

The nation however is still losing grounds in the area of unemployment, inflation, economic stagnation and over/under supply of skilled labour force. In Nigeria expects to solve HS social economic problem in efficiency; it must take a critical look at the development of the Small-Scale business because of this development sector can be synonymous with national economic growth. The emphasis on the small business sector, was not encouraged until recently and this changing emphasis was caused by some setbacks presented by other sectors of the economy. It has been discovered that the public sector alone failed to significantly encourage economic growth. This recognition informed the need of desire to examine critically the impact of Small–Scale Enterprises financing in improving the socio- economic wellbeing of the Nigerian people.

• This study will also guide the operation of most large and Small – Scale Enterprises (publicly and privately owned) and since most public companies are now being, privatized, this paper will be of immense help in their dealing with Small Scale Enterprises.
1.6 SCOPE AND LIMITATIONOF THE STUDY
This study will cover number of Small – Scale enterprises from 2000 – 2004 owned and operated by Nigerians who are single owners. Directory of small – scale enterprises in Delta State in 2000 by the state ministry of commerce and industry, Asaba outlined some enterprises in Delta State. Thus this research is restricted to selected Small – Scale enterprises in Aniocha North Local Government Area of Delta State such as Pazuka Enterprises Nigeria involves in a soap making, Pakan Universal Agencies Nigeria, involved in poultry rearing, Vicmiliorganization involved in bakery, Lucky group of designers involved in garri processing, Iweka wood workers involved in furniture making etc. This research will also deal with the impact of small – scale enterprises financing in improving the socio-economic well-being of the Nigerian people.
This work will also look at how banks help to finance small – scale enterprises activities of those business in terms of revenue generation and employment and income accruing to the owners. There were certain limitation that the search encountered in the course of carrying out his study. They include;
• Financial constraints which limited the scope of this study on the ministry of commerce and industry, Asaba and Banks.
• Another problem is time constraints, a research of this nature which is expected to reduce for researching result would certainly have required a lot of time to make an in-debt look at personal observation possible. However since the work has to be submitted within a specific time, I had to combine lectures, semester course work and examination with research work.
• Another limitation borders on poor response from small-scale enterprises business owner and large earners (employees)
• This is because of the non- challant attitude of small-scale industry owners to disclose relevant information about their business for fear of tax collectors. Despite the limitations mentioned above, great efforts have been made by researchers to collect comprehensive information from few Small – Scale enterprises necessary for the study. The study should therefore be assessed in the light of the said scope and limitations.
