Legal services are expensive and are not easy to access especially in rural areas. In many instances where there is legal aid, the target has been to offer it to the most vulnerable and indigent members of society whose rights are being abused. Much of this legal aid does not target the entrepreneurial spirit of many African social enterprises. As a result, many entities are blocked out of access to legal services.

It is important to note that the value chain in many African economies is driven by associations united along the values of communalism. These include cooperatives, farmers groups, savings and cooperative organizations, etc. These sectors provide employment and are engines for growth. Despite the fact that these entities drive growth, they never grow to reach their potential and this is because of bottlenecks including but not limited to the lack of legal systems to spur the growth of Social Businesses. Many are run as individual or family businesses with limited corporate governance structures which stifles their growth. Even when negotiating for financing or participating in broader international trade practices, they are limited by their informality which ultimately affects their growth.
