  • Determinants of Savings Habits Among Cocoa Farmers in Ghana: A Case Study
           of Atwima Nwabiagya District of the Ashanti Region

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Emmanuel Buabeng , Opoku Adabor , Nadia Karen Ohene-Poku
      Pages: 1 - 23
      Abstract: Cocoa, the main agricultural foreign exchange earner for Ghana, is mostly produced on a small-scale level. Cocoa farmers suffer poverty in old age as no formal pension schemes exist for them. Therefore, the only remedy for these farmers is to save for future investment and consumption. The objectives of the study include: to identify the motives for saving and the barriers to saving, and to examine the factors which influence cocoa farmers to save. The study sampled 364 cocoa farmers from the Atwima Nwabiagya district of the Ashanti region using the multi-stage sampling technique, and the questionnaire as the main field instrument. The results from the binary probit model showed that age, family size, size of the cocoa farm and gender are the main determinants of the saving habits of cocoa farmers. The study also showed that the cocoa pension fund is new to many of the cocoa farmers, thus only a few contributed their savings to the fund. The study recommends that the saving culture of cocoa farmers should be enhanced. Specifically, this can be achieved through financial literacy programmes, financial education and awareness on the importance of saving. Also, the cocoa farmers should be educated on the benefits of saving a portion of their income through the pension funds by the district Ministry of Food and Agriculture. Keywords: Savings habit; cocoa farmers; financial education; probit regression; Ghana

  • Livelihood Diversification Among Rural Forest Dwellers in
           Akwa-Ibom,Nigeria: A Multinomial Logit Approach

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Felix O. Idumah, Deborah O. Oke, Lucy A. Orumwense, Femi Awe
      Pages: 25 - 42
      Abstract: This study was carried out to determine the factors influencing the involvement  of some rural forest communities’ livelihood  diversification strategies in Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. The multi-stage sampling technique was used to select 100 respondents for this study. The first stage involved the purposive selection of three local government areas (LGAs): Esit Eket, Mbo, and Ibeno, where the forest reserve is located. The second stage involved the random selection of ten villages from the three LGAs. The third stage comprised the random selection of ten respondents from each of the selected ten villages. Descriptive statistics such as frequency, percentage, as well as inferential statistics such as the multinomial logistic regression were used in the study. The results of the multinomial logistic regression show that total household income, household size, farm size, educational qualification, access to extension service, farming experience and forest availability were the factors that significantly influenced the respondents’ choice of livelihood strategies in the study area. Policies that will encourage diversification in order to broaden opportunities that will lead to increase in income and improve rural household livelihood should be encouraged.

  • Post-founder Survival of Indigenous Enterprises and Employment
           Sustainability in South West Nigeria

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Oluyomi A. Awofeso, Anthony A. Obemeat
      Pages: 43 - 74
      Abstract: Sustainable employment contributes substantially to sustainable economic  growth and development. In like manner, indigenous private enterprises aid  sustainable development by contributing to job security and sustainability. While many indigenous enterprises  fold up after the death of their founders, some have been able to outlive their founders. Though many studies have been carried out on factors accounting for business survival when the founders are alive, there is a paucity of research on the factors responsible for the survival of the enterprises after their founders’ demise. Moreover, only a handful of empirical research focus on the contributions of ventures whose founders are deceased to employment sustainability in Nigeria. These were the gaps this study aimed to fill. Drawing on insights from the Co-evolution theory and employing a case study research design, 10 purposively selected surviving post-founder indigenous enterprises (in three purposively selected states) in South West Nigeria were studied. Findings show that enterprises of deceased founders that have been able to co-evolve with their environment through adaptation to societal demands and trends,  amongst others, have been able to remain in operation. Also, these enterprises have contributed to employment sustainability by retaining old staff and creating job opportunities for new job seekers. Five out the 10 post-founder indigenous business ventures currently have above 100 employees; one of the ventures has above 30 employees while three of the ventures have above 10 employees. From the findings of the study, the major reason new employees are needed emanates from current social and economic realities. Despite the fact that technological changes and modern economic trends are contributing to job losses globally, these same factors have accounted for the need for new manpower among postfounder indigenous ventures. These trends necessitate the employment new staff who can fit into the modern requirements of work. Besides, the majority of the ventures have been able to retain long-serving employees. These are employees who have been with the enterprise since the founder’s lifetime. The study  recommends that indigenous enterprises should always tailor their services and products to societal needs in order to remain  sustainable and retain their staff. Sustainable business ventures in turn contribute to both sustainable employment and sustainable
      development. Key words: Indigenous enterprises, Post-founder enterprise continuity, Employment sustainability, Sustainable  development, Nigeria

  • Determinants of Job Satisfaction and Job Turnover Intention: Empirical
           Evidence from Commercial Bank Workers in Ibadan

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Oluwakemi Bolaji Okuwa
      Pages: 75 - 92
      Abstract: This paper examined the determinants of job satisfaction and job turnover intention of the workers of selected banks in Ibadan. Multiple sampling methods were used to select the sample. While the purposive sampling method was employed to select 12 banks that have the highest number of branches in Ibadan, the random sampling technique was used to consider 20 respondents from each of the bank, irrespective of branch, giving a total of 240 respondents. The Herzberg’s two factor theory provided the theoretical basis
      for the determinants of job satisfaction and job turnover intention. The factors predicted by the theory were estimated using the probit estimation technique. The results showed that adequacy of salary, safety in work place, possibility of promotion, and interpersonal relations among the staff were the factors that enhanced job satisfaction of the workers of the banks. However, long working hours, job insecurity and conflicts between office and family schedules reduced the job satisfaction of the bankers. On the other hand, higher
      education, company policies, supervision, salary, working conditions, and job insecurity were the factors that drove turnover intention in the banks. Also, female bank workers had greater tendency of job turnover intention than male workers. Long years of service and  job satisfaction were found to reduce job turnover intention. Keywords: Job satisfaction, Job turnover intention, Herzberg’s two factor theory, Commercial bank workers

  • Entrepreneurial Competency and Business Success Among Indigenous Micro,
           Small and Medium Scale Enterprises

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: smail O. Azeez, Adeola Essien
      Pages: 93 - 115
      Abstract: Globally, indigenous views and values have been documented as impacting enterprise and “competencies” and as such, practical means of addressing entrepreneurial impact. In spite of this, indigenous micro, small and medium scale enterprises (MSMEs) are faced with lack of appropriate knowledge, limited skills, limited access to information technology and modern production technology, all of which inform competency. This paper therefore assessed the extent to which entrepreneurial competence influenced business
      success in MSMEs using between 50% and 80% indigenous materials. The study was conducted in Ogun, Oyo and Lagos states in Southwestern Nigeria. The MSMEs in the study area were stratified based on industrial capacity and from the light manufacturing segment. The purposive and simple random sampling techniques were used to select 3 states and 20 MSMEs across different indigenous enterprises in the selected states. A well-structured questionnaire was used for data collection. Data generated were analysed using descriptive statistics. Findings revealed that lack of or limited entrepreneurial competencies are a result of lack of
      entrepreneurship education. Impediments to indigenous enterprise development were observed to be: limited exposure and entrepreneurial skills of people who start and operate businesses which limit the success of their businesses . It is there fore recomm ended that entrepreneurship education and training should be incorporated into the vocational training curriculum to improve entrepreneurial competencies in the study area, and other environments with similar characteristics to ensure the success of indigenous enterprises. Keywords: Indigenous Knowledge, Entrepreneurial Competencies, Indigenous Business Success

  • Direct and Spillover Effects of Health Insurance on Household Consumption
           Patterns in Ekiti State, Nigeria

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Francis O. Adeyimi
      Pages: 117 - 143
      Abstract: The report by the National Bureau of Statistics in 2017 that nearly 70 percent of Nigerians were living in poverty, using the dollar per day adjusted purchasing power parity as the criterion, implies weak ability to smoothen consumption over time for a large percentage of the population whenever there is an ailment. This study is therefore designed to examine the direct and spillover effects of health insurance (HI) on both medical and non-medical consumption in Ekiti State. A structured questionnaire was randomly administered to about 1500 respondents in all the hospitals that offer health insurance services in Ekiti State. A diagnostic test was performed to show the quality of match between insured and uninsured households, and their suitability for the study. The propensity score from logit
      regression at ñ#0.05 was used to predict the probability of HI participation while the propensity score matching estimator was used to determine the direct and spillover effects of health insurance. The propensity score matching coefficient for medical consumption was 0.07 and positive, showing that medical consumption increased with health insurance status. The spillover effect of HI was 24,970 and it was positive indicating that health insurance increased non-medical consumption of the insured by N=24,970 in the period of illness. This implies that health insurance increased the overall consumption of the insured households in the state. Keywords: Direct effect, Spillover effect, Propensity Score Matching, Consumption patterns
