Abstract:This study explores the exclusion of informal Micro enterprises from the policies on Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in Rwanda and Senegal and the factors that contribute to this exclusion. ‘’What are the factors that contribute to the exclusion of the iSMEs, particularly informal Micro Enterprises (iME), from the Small and Medium Enterprises policies in Rwanda and Senegal?’’ is the fundamental question of this research in the broader area of informality, business enterprises and policy regulations in these two countries. The study is using the model framework of the Contextual Interaction Theory to explain how factors interact between each other and in specific given contexts. To answer the question adequately methods of quantitative and qualitative research were combined in analyzing the primary and secondary data, such as interviews and data on rental and permit payments. It has been discovered that iSMEs are not excluded completely and that there are certain levels of awareness. Moreover, the findings from the research put forward the key factors that add to the exclusion, namely: survival, lack of financial resources and informality as a manner of living for all involved in the informal businesses.
