This study examined rural women’s constraints to
participation in IFAD/CBARDP on poverty reduction in Kebbi
State Nigeria. Multi-stage random sampling technique was used
to select a total of one hundred and (120) beneficiaries (Rural
Women). Interview schedule was the main tool used for data
collection while descriptive statistics (frequency distribution and
percentages) were used to analyse the data. The result showed
that the mean age of the respondents was 40 years, 69% were
married, the average household size of the beneficiaries was 10
persons, 95% of the beneficiaries did not have formal education,
62% of the beneficiaries were into trading as their major
occupation, the average farm size of those involved in farming as
their occupation was 0.225 hectares and the average amount of
years spent in the programme was 5 years. While 28% of the
beneficiaries had no problem during participation, inadequate
cash was the major constraint of 14% of those beneficiaries that
had problem during the programme. It could be concluded that
majority of the respondents have not encountered any constraint
in the course of their participation in the programme. For those
respondents that reported inadequate cash to be their constraint,
provision of adequate cash with proper monitoring mechanism
should be put in place for effective participation of rural women
in the programme.
