Financing SMEs and Entrepreneurs 2014

The OECD Scoreboard on "Financing SMEs and Entrepreneurs 2014" analyses and monitors financing difficulties and trends in 31 countries along with the policies implemented to deal with these challenges. Since the Great Recession, data show a weak recovery in SMEs' and entrepreneurs' access to finance in many countries. Some of them also experienced a further deteriorating situation in 2011-2012, including emerging economies which underwent substantial business credit growth

In addition the scoreboard provides readers with a range of non-bank financing instruments available to SMEs and entrepreneurs.
