We know running your small business is challenging and sometimes frustrating, so having an adviser who is on your side is invaluable. Whether you have a background in business or simply a passion for what you do, we can support you to grow your business and make it successful.
SME Desk is a PwC Nigeria social impact initiative to support small businesses and the role they play in the economy. It is one of the ways we are helping to build trust in society and solve important problems by giving small businesses a greater chance to succeed under an often difficult environment.
Many small and medium-sized entrepreneurs are affected by the COVID-19 crisis. This brings a true sense of uncertainty. How can I best guide my business through this crisis? How do I take care of my employees in the best way? And can I get support from the government?
PwC wants to provide guidance to you. Of course, we won't be able to answer all your questions. Much is still uncertain, even for us. We will do our best to help you get started as well and quickly as possible.
