Micro small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) contribute significantly to the economic and social development of many countries. In particular, the sector provides new job opportunities, stimulates competition and thus boost productivity. Accordingly, the sustainability of MSMEs is of paramount importance. However, according to Fatoki (2012) 60% of MSMEs fail within the first five years of their operations. One of the reasons of this failure is poor financial management which is mainly because of poor financial literacy. Financial literacy is also an issue highlighted in the human resource ability in accessing fund from financial institution. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to assess the level of financial literacy among Amanah Ikhtiar Malaysia (AIM) MSMEs operator in Klang Valley from three different districts of Selangor.

The findings indicated that ANOVA result significantly influences financial literacy. The study results indicated that knowledge, financial socialization agents, attitude and financial skills are significant predictors of financial literacy among AIM MSMEs operator in Klang Valley, Malaysia.
