MetadataShow full item record
The Micro and Small Scale-Enterprises (MSEs) have emerged as the panacea to the rising unemployment problem prevailing in Zimbabwe. One of the reasons why unemployment is rising at a higher rate than that of employment creation has been the retrenchments resulting from the implementation of the Economic Structural Adjustment Programme (ESAP). In order to address the growing problems of unemployment, policy makers have therefore taken measures to promote the growth of MSEs. The policies shall be discussed later in this chapter.
