  • Product Description

The focus of the study is to establish the implications of the integrated efforts in self-help movement while considering the long standing women’s associations and their support for households. A sample of 145 individuals was selected through stratified systematic random sampling. Data were collected using interview schedules, questionnaires, oral interview guides, and focus groups discussions. The study employed descriptive analysis because of the qualitative nature of the data. T-tests were, however, carried out on the a few variables which could be quantified. The study findings have revealed that mixed –sex groups provided an opportunity to venture into a variety of activities with an economic orientation. Groups varied significantly due to factors relate to resource access, culture and education. Women only groups were at a disadvantage because of their relation to the means of production. Management was a problem for all groups, calling for an intensive training in leadership and management skills.
