Author(s): Samson Nambei Asoba and Nteboheng Mefi

Propelling and accelerating growth of immigrant-owned enterprises is critical for the increase of gainful employment, exports and gross domestic outputs in South Africa. In spite of their contribution only a small number of them having grown to reach the small to medium sized business threshold. In response to the problem of failure to grow, this study aimed to formulate a empirically based framework for the growth of immigrant-owned enterprises in South Africa. The study utilised a desk top to review literature on the growth drivers that are significant factors components of the frame work. The study recommended that the cultivation of a personal relationship with support institutions should be maintained and used whenever there is a deficiency of skills. Owners of micro craft enterprises should group into lobbying and bargaining units that seek the attention of regional institutions to advocate for the formation of favourable regulations for craft businesses among member states.
