Banking institutions may be able to help individuals set up businesses as  well as aid in the creation of a solid financial framework which will support ongoing sustainable economic development (Conley and Williams, 2011). While there is a general recognition of  the potential benefits, little research has been undertaken on a practical level examining the way this may be implemented in Sub-Sahara Africa (UNEP FI, 2009). The research will be  undertaken to a facilitate an examination of way in which sustainable banking may be implemented in Sub- Sahara Africa to support development, which will aid with long-term economic development  in the country and benefit the local citizens as well as meet the banks needs (Conley and Williams, 2011).
