  • A Partial Least Squares Approach to the Financing Behaviour of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises   Order a copy of this article
    by Vibhuti Mittal, T.V. Raman 
    Abstract: The present study explores the financing behaviour of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises’ (MSME) owners. A nexus of owners’ personal attributes (PC) and behavioural aspects including financial knowledge (FK), financing motivation (M), and risk taking ability (R) has been created to determine the financing preferences (FP) and capital structure decision (CSD) of firm owners. The research framework adopts quantitative approach to the analysis. 274 responses were collected and analysed through Partial Least Squares Structural Equation Modeling on SmartPLSv2. The findings support the direct and mediating role of M and R in predicting FP and its relationship with PC. Moreover, the study confirms the role of FP in determining CSD in terms of pecking order behaviour among firm owners. The integration of owners’ personal characteristics and behavioural factors in determining firms’ financial decision adds value to the theory and practice of MSME financing.
