I'm not sure to completely understand your first question.
The smaller ISP will get from AfriNIC, by default, a /32.
So even if this ISP follows, for example, the BCOP RIPE690 recommendations (which is my suggestion), and allocates /48 to every customer, they will be able to support up to 65.535 possible customers.
If this ISP is bigger, and they need a /30, because they have, for example, 250.000 customers, they need to tell to AfriNIC that they will use /48 per customer, and they will get it ... and so on.
Regarding IPv6 PI, I've another policy proposal to remove that. At this policy proposal I'm just clarifying and correcting languages, and references, that's why I don't tackle the relation to IPv4.
I'm clear that there will be IPv6-only ISPs very soon, so that why if looked at this as well. You need to look at them in order:

Asunto: [rpd] Comments on AFPUB-2018-V6-001-DRAFT01
I read AFPUB-2018-V6-001-DRAFT01. I would like to thank you for
proposing an update to the existing IPv6 policy as there has been
changes from the SDO since the policy was written.
The existing policy states that the RIR "is not concerned about which
address size an LIR actually assigns". This proposal changes that as
it has 'End sites or users must be assigned a prefix that is a
multiple of "n" /64's which must be enough to meet their current and
planned needs ...' Does that make the IPv6 policy one which is based
on a "needs-basis" for a small  service provider?
The proposed change in "6.8" sets a requirement where IPv6 PI space
is dependent upon qualification for IPv4 PI space. What is the
rationale for keeping the dependency?
1. The word "small" is relative.
