This paper explores the key issues relating to financial sector policies for enterprise development, with special implications for Africa. The role of the formal financial sector – ranging from microfinance institutions, banks, the capital market, and regulatory agencies – is discussed with respect to enterprise development at all levels, including start-ups, small and medium firms, and large corporates. Specific policy choices for African countries are highlighted, including exploiting the current communications and information technology (CIT) revolution.
