For the whole economy and the mechanisms that take place in it to be effective, it is necessary to develop the small business sector. Its dynamic impact on the economy manifests itself in active reference to changes taking place in the environment. In terms of the constantly changing consumer preferences and their new requirements, it is the smaller companies that stand out with greater ease of adaptation. One of the most important measures of the assessment of the country's economic growth is both the opportunities and the number of small enterprises.
