Abstract

SMEs have a very important role towards society, being responsible for the production of a large part of the total goods and services, but also for stimulating competition, introducing innovative methods and for their importance in employability. In Mozambique, the credit capacity of SMEs is quite weak as the results point to the lack of organized accounting, insufficient collateral, reduced bargaining power, weak business management skills, and weaknesses in structuring business plans are challenges for SMEs to access bank financing. The main difficulty in applying for credit by companies is the existence of unattractive and uncompetitive rates and fees. The biggest problem related to accessing bank credit is the prohibitive collateral requirements and the problem of structural deficiencies, which cripple the economy.
