Graded Discussion Board

Topic: SMEs in Pakistan



Objective of GDB

To highlight the challenges faced by the SMEs in Pakistan.


Learning Outcomes

After attempting this activity, the students will be able to:

  • Identify different types of challenges faced by the SMEs.





Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) have proved to be the engine of growth in several successful economies.  These economies include Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and India. But Pakistan’s economy has least contribution by this sector, although the country has a very strong case for boosting SME growth. While, many incentives had been introduced by Pakistani government previously for SMEs growth but unfortunately that didn’t bear any fruit. According to various studies, SMEs do face no. of challenges and hurdles.

According to a recent report of the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP), SMEs hold only 6% of the banking credit portfolio while the major chunk of around 66% goes to large corporations.

It is said that availability of banking credit serves as a bloodline for any business and credit flow in Pakistan is biased in favor of large corporate firms.


Due to this disparity, the gap between the rich and the poor has widened beyond imagination. Small firms have vanished and we have witnessed birth of large business conglomerates in the economy.


Point of discussion

Apart from facing financial barriers, in your opinion what can be the other challenges faced by SMEs in Pakistan? Highlight any two such challenges.
