FINDINGS, RECOMMENDATION AND CONCLUSION
1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
So much had been said and written about commercial bank lending to small and medium scale enterprises. One still wonders why the small and medium scale enterprises are ever faced with the age-old syndrome of inadequate funds. The presence of the small and medium scale industries are not found in large numbers in very city, towns and villages as one would have thought, at least judging by the preponderance of attention it had been enjoying for long time now.

The loan shall be strictly for activities in the industrial sector. Prior to 2004 the prescribed minimum was 16 percent.
Commercial banks have been complying fully with this laudable objective of funding small and medium scale enterprises adequately as directed by the Central Bank of Nigeria. Consequently, many of these small and medium scale enterprises (SME) get “choked” “die” because of inadequate financial support from the commercial banks.
1.3 OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY
The relevance of the small and medium scale enterprises to the rapid economic development of the country is very fundamental to our survival as a people. The commercial banks which number up to 120 in the country with branches spread all over the country do not provide adequate credit to the small
