|Title:||EFFECTS OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP TRAINING AND THE GROWTH OF SMALL SCALE POULTRY INDUSTRY IN DORMAA MUNICIPALITY|
|Abstract:||Entrepreneurship development is a precondition for the sustained economic development of a country. In Ghana, a multiplicity of factors have accounted for the decline of the domestic poultry industry. One of the major factors has been the lack of entrepreneurship training for operatives in the industry. This study explored the effects of entrepreneurship training on the growth of the poultry industry in Dormaa Municipality of the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana. Data for the study was obtained using structured questionnaire. In all, 169 poultry farmers participated in the study. Quantitative data was analyzed using the Statistical Package for social scientist (SPSS), version 18. The study concluded that opportunities for small scale poultry farmers in the Dormaa Municipality to engage in entrepreneurship training are inadequate. The major aspects of entrepreneurship training that would be relevant to the growth of the poultry business in the Dormaa Municipality includes training on vaccination, building network of entrepreneurs and how to finance business. The effects of entrepreneurship training for poultry farmers in the Municipality has resulted in reduced failure rates, increased profits and the growth of poultry industry. The study recommended that stakeholders such as the Ministry of Food and Agriculture, Ghana National Association of Poultry Farmers and National Board for Small Scale Industries, among others, should organize regular training programmes and workshops for the poultry farmers.|
