Abstract

This study seeks to investigate the role of financial management on the growth of Small Business Enterprise in Lagos state in Nigeria. The growth of Small Business has been hampered by lack of finance through misappropriation of funds which is affecting the capital base, market share number of employees, and productivity. The study revealed that there is a relationship between financial management and growth of SBE. The research also revealed that having financial management knowledge does not guarantee the achievement of SBE goals and objectives. The study therefore recommended that training centre should be established by government for entrepreneurs. Equally, employment of financial management experts should be encouraged amidst Small Business owners.
