  • Does gender matter in credit denial among small and medium scale
           enterprises in Ghana?
    • Authors: Samuel Tawiah Baidoo, Daniel Sakyi, Jacob Benson Aidoo
      Pages: 339 - 362
      Abstract: The role played by small and medium scale enterprises (SMEs) in employment creation, economic growth and poverty reduction of the developing world cannot be overemphasised. However, the ability of these enterprises to access credit in order to expand their businesses has for years remain a key challenge. Past studies on credit denial among SMEs have emphasised firms' characteristics with little emphasis on firm owners' characteristics such as gender. The present study revisits previous studies and provides evidence supporting our hypothesis that gender matters in credit denial among SMEs. The study relies mainly on primary data and applies the binary probit estimation technique to the dataset. The study reveals among others that owners of small and medium scale enterprises who are females are less likely to be denied credit. Given the findings, recommendations and relevant policy implications are provided.

  • Internal corporate governance mechanisms and intellectual capital
           disclosure: evidence from Tunisia
    • Authors: Mondher Kouki, Mariem Bouchareb, Abderrazek El Khaldi
      Pages: 363 - 382
      Abstract: This paper examines the effect of internal corporate governance mechanisms on intellectual capital disclosure. Using data of 27 non-financial listed Tunisian firms, the current study provides evidence in support of the nonlinear relationship between corporate governance and Intellectual capital disclosure. The empirical results show that the structure and the way the board of directors' functions are systematically significant factors determining intangible capital disclosure. The empirical tests indicate that managers, majority shareholders as well as institutional shareholders have a significant effect on the informative transparency of intangible capital. These results seem to corroborate the view that an increase in corporate governance mechanisms has a positive effect on voluntary disclosure. Furthermore, tests of the nonlinear hypothesis show that an increase in the number of board members up to nine, and an increase in the number of majority shareholders up to 67% have a beneficial effect on intangible disclosure. However, as these variables increase beyond a turning point, the effect inverts and cuts off the improvement of voluntary disclosure of intangibles.

  • Impact of bank capital regulation and GDP growth on profitability in
           commercial small and medium banks: empirical study
    • Authors: Shazaib Butt, Stéphane Strtak
      Pages: 383 - 394
      Abstract: We empirically examine the impact of Basel compliance and economic activity on the profitability of commercial small and medium banks of Pakistan during and post global financial crises of 2007–2008. Panel data setting is implemented using annual data from 25 commercial banks during the period 2007 to 2014. The data tested GDP growth rate and bank specific risk variables. We find strong evidence that market risk, non-performing loans, NPLs and GDP growth rate have significant impact on the profitability of small and medium commercial banks.

  • A gender analysis of micro-entrepreneurship in developing-transition
           countries: insights from Botswana
    • Authors: Daniel Mmereki, Alice Hovorka, Thando Gwebu
      Pages: 395 - 429
      Abstract: Policy-makers and members of the donor community have acknowledged the importance of micro-enterprises to livelihoods in developing countries. Their contribution to household income is significant to the extent that in some developing countries it exceeds that of the formal sector. However, the dearth of information regarding the ways in which male-owned and female-owned micro-enterprises grow and change over time is becoming a major academic and policy concern. Using Botswana as the case study country, this paper presents a qualitative analysis of microenterprises in developing countries, using data collected on issues of source of start-up capital, perceived growth, and the dynamics of household decision making in the informal sector. A number of challenges were identified including inadequacy of policy support on micro-enterprises, the gap between male and female-owned entrepreneurs in terms of perceived growth of their operational units and inadequacy of programs for start-up of micro-enterprises. Comparatively, female-owned micro-enterprises were faced with a myriad of more challenges than male-owned micro-enterprises. The outputs are particularly useful to support decision makers, and focus on enhancing empowerment and awareness on available support programs to female entrepreneurs for employment creation in specific locations.

  • 'From guanxi to WeChat?': new social networking technologies and
           digital entrepreneurship in Beijing
    • Authors: Daniel Mmereki, Alice Hovorka, Thando Gwebu
      Pages: 430 - 454
      Abstract: This paper explores how digital entrepreneurs utilise social networking technologies to develop and maintain networks in an increasingly digital environment. Despite the growing relevance and use of social networking technologies in entrepreneurship, few studies investigate the impact and outcome of social networking technologies in entrepreneurial processes. This paper addresses this research gap and explores the silent revolution instigated by new technological developments on contemporary networking practices. This paper is based on a case study involving 20 Beijing based digital entrepreneurs and presents empirical data contributing to the intersection of entrepreneurship and networking in the digital age. The paper applies a theoretical framework combining entrepreneurship and network theory, and offers new theoretical directions suited to explore networking in the digital dimension. The paper offers advanced insights to contemporary entrepreneurship and networking in the digital era, a field in need of future attention and extensive research.
