Abstract:The colonial marginalization of African entrepreneurs in East Africa was achieved through outright suppression, exclusion and discrimination. After independence, the situation deteriorated further. Access of small-scale and microenterprise operators in sub-Saharan Africa to land, credit, technology, markets and information has continued to be constrained by inherited laws and practices. Yet rules and regulations can play multiple functions of socialization and integration. Their utility could be enhanced if they facilitated rather than controlled development. Bibliogr., sum.
