Shaw (2004) makes a distinction between survival micro-enterprises and entrepreneurial micro-enterprises. In developing countries where the poor are poorly educated, finance and technology are largely unaffordable, most micro-enterprises are entered into for survival purposes. Does this preclude them from growth and entrepreneurial activity? Kiggundu (2002) identifies that despite significant problems, there are promising cases of an emerging entrepreneurial class in Africa.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
