Question. Explain in detail, the following three problems of small scale industries in the country
(i) Finance
(ii) Marketing
(iii) Raw Materials
Answer : (i) Finance One of the severe problems faced by SSIs is the non-availability of adequate finance to carry out its operations. These units lack in credit worthiness and have a small capital base. As a result, they heavily depend on local financial resources and frequently become the victims of exploitation by the money lenders.
(ii) Marketing Small scale enterprises are unable to meet the expenses of marketing activities. They depend on middlemen who exploit them by paying low prices for their goods and delaying their payments.
(iii) Raw Materials If the required materials are not available, small businesses have to compromise on the quality or have to pay high price to get good quality materials. Their bargaining power is relatively low due to the small quantity of purchases made by them. They cannot afford to buy in bulk because they do not have the facility to store material and
neither do they have the necessary finance.
