1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
The goal or desire of any nation is to achieve its
economic growth and development. For the Nigeria government, employment
provision for all and reasonable development of all localities are certainly
not feasible within the limited government structures and establishment. The
federal government therefore considers the active participation of the private
sector especially at the grass root as the most viable means of achieving the
development and job provisions. Hence, in its second and third national development
plan, the federal government adopted the policy of giving active support to the
promotion and development of small and medium enterprises on the country.
However, are would want to know what entrepreneurial
development is all about. According to some writers, especially in the written
work of H. O. Amaechina “entrepreneurship concept of small business
management”, entrepreneur. So defined as the willingness and ability of an
individual to seek out investment opportunities, establish and run the enterprise
successfully. Thus entrepreneurship is associated with different kinds of
activities that has to do with the establishment and operation of business
enterprises. Such activities may include;
Identification of investment opportunities.
Deciding what opportunities to exploit for profit.
Promotion and establishment of the business
Pooling of the various scarce resources needed for
production and distribution of good and services.
Organisation and management of the human and
material resources for the attainment of the objectives of the enterprise, risk
bearing and innovation.
