Over the years several studies in relation to the growth of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) have reported that, SMEs were netted out from conventional financial services. This, motivated the regulatory authorities and several authors in the field and especially in emerging economies in an effort to foster SMEs access to financing. These regulatory authorities employed microfinance institutions as mechanism in dealing with the issue of financial exclusion. Review of the literature revealed that previous studies documented evidence on the connection between SMEs growth and its determinants. Though moderately few studies have struggled to consider the connection between social capital and the growth of SMEs. Hence, this paper is a proposed framework on the influence of loan, savings and social capital on the growth of SMEs in Nigeria. The framework is developed based on the Resource Based Theory (RBT) and Theory of Social Capital.
