Section 2: SMALL BUSINESS FINANCE (ENT 225)

Small businesses have many definitions, which vary. The differences in these definitions are usually as a result of differences in the level of development of a country, differences in the organization and structure of industries in different countries and other consideration.

There are various criteria used in classifying small businesses such as employment (number of workers), assets value, turnover, etc. Each country tends to adopt which ever parameter or criteria suitable for it, based on  their economic policies  and  the  role  small businesses are expected  to  play  in  the  economic  growth  and  development  of  the country.

[more…]

In the previous unit, you studied the characteristics of small business. The present unit is a discrete unit and independent from the previous ones you have studied so far in this course. In this unit, we will discuss the Nigerian financial system to provide you the necessary understanding of its activities.

The Nigerian Financial System has evolved over the years from a rudimentary stage to a more sophisticated stage. There are so many operators, instruments, and institutions that facilitate the performance of its role, especially the role of financial intermediation. Financial intermediation is the process that facilitates the transfer of saved funds of some economic units to others for investment purposes. For example, the personal savings of an individual, placed in a bank, can be loaned to another individual or a business enterprise for the purchase of machineries, equipments, raw materials etc for productive purposes. Despite considerable research on subjects dealt with in study manuals, many lack evidence to support their ideas. Some are paternalistic, offering philosophy and advice about personal problems and, as with study skills, advice may be based on the author‘s own beliefs. For example, an author may offer suggestions for students on dealing with stress without referring to any expert on the subject. Before going into detail on this to unit, let us get the objectives of the unit.

[more…]

In the previous module, we focused on the Nigerian financial system, where we treated the money market, capital market, CBN, SEC, etc in each  unit  of  the  module,  to  enable  us  understand  how  and  where finances are mobilized. This module focused on the finance options available for small businesses. Thus, this unit dwells on the types and sources of finance. An individual who intends to start a small business needs capital and a steady source of finance.

Section 3: DISTRIBUTION AND SALES MANAGEMENT (MKT 306)

A popular slogan in marketing says that “nothing happens until a sale is made”. This statement is supported by reason and experience. The typical firm can be seen as an input-output system. Having previously ascertained what the buyers wants are – specifications and requirements, it translates these into product concepts and finally into goods and services capable of satisfying the identified wants. It is not sufficient to produce outputs that can satisfy human wants, these must be properly priced and made available when and where they are needed. All these however will still not ensure that the exchange takes place and the buyer takes possession and ownership while the firm earns income (revenue). There is need for communication, in the process of which awareness is created, desires are aroused and prospects or customers are persuaded that a particular product being offered has the greatest potential to satisfy their consumption needs and the benefit of using the product outweigh the cost of acquiring it.

[more…]

The basic function of management of any firm or its units are planning organizing, coordinating, motivating, and controlling, among all others. Every firm has an objective and this is identified during the planning process. The setting up of the objectives equally identifies how the goals are to be accomplished through some strategic formulations and arrangements. The results at the end of the whole activities are monitored or appraised to determine whether the results are accomplished as initially determined or deviated from the plans, the reasons established, and some corrective measures mapped out. In between the planning and controlling stages of these management activities by the firm, organizing comes in because different resources (human, finance, materials and machines) that aid in accomplishing the results have to be arranged properly for more synergistic results.

[more…]

Communication between the sales force, markets, and the firm is an essential form of motivating the sales force. This is because the sales force activities and how to improve on them are made known to them through the constant and continuous meetings and conventions between the organization and its sales force.
