Small business creation in Cameroon has now become very easy. Many reforms have been taken by the government of Cameroon to ease the creation of businesses. An example is the various Formality Centers for Enterprise Creation. The Small and Medium-sized Enterprise Promotion Agency was created on April 13 2010 to help in providing services that help in the creation and development of small and medium-sized enterprises in Cameroon. Their aim is to bring in as many informal businesses into the formal sector as well as make them more efficient, competitive, innovative and responsible.

There are ten support centers for Formality Centers for Enterprise Creation located in the various regional headquarters except for the South West Region which is located in the Fako Divisional headquarter of Limbe.
