According to the latest report of Statistics Mauritius, some 125.500 micro-enterprises were registered in Mauritius in 2013 against 92.400 small structures five years earlier.
 
These small businesses employed about 283,000 people last year and their activities have drained 82 billion rupees "in terms of value added" with a strong growth which was close to the 91% in five years, as reported by the newspaper L'Express of Mauritius.
 
A little more than 38% of these micro-enterprises are active in the sector of trade and repair of vehicles.
 
Only 2% of them show business figures higher than 10 million rupees.
