Abstract

In developing countries, Entrepreneurship plays a great role to economic growth. Entrepreneurship creates new fields for the job seeker and it will ultimately reduce the unemployment problem of the country. Bangladesh is a developing country and here unemployment problem is a big issue in recent period. Entrepreneurship and service has a mutual exclusive relationship. The people wants to become entrepreneur are feeling discourage to become a service holder. In contrary the people wants to become service holder are feeling discourage to become an entrepreneur. There are some factors that greatly influence the entrepreneurial intention of the students. Basically a student takes decision by considering the present and future benefit of both entrepreneurship and service. Here we have select 400 graduates and non-graduates students to know their career objectives as well as their intension towards entrepreneurship. Only 64 respondents through positive response to entrepreneurship and they have little positive attitude towards the financial support, economic condition, scope and political condition in the perspective of Bangladesh. They also think that it has a poor social acceptance. But maximum respondents thought that it is an independent concern and it will make them more satisfied. Here we want to get the attention of the relevant bodies that will play a great role to develop these factors. If these factors are developed we will get more entrepreneurs. The enhancement of entrepreneurship will helps to reduce the unemployment problem as well as it will positively affect the economy of the country.

 Key words: Entrepreneurship, Entrepreneurial Intention, Graduate and Non-graduate Students, Influencing Factors, Bangladesh.

Authors: Kh Zulfikar Hossain, Md Javed Azad, Hossain Al Mufthi, Md Mahbubul Alam, PhD & Md Masum Abdullah

Abstract

This study assessed the information seeking behavior of grass root level extension workers, known as Sub-Assistant Agriculture Officers (SAAOs) of the Department of Agricultural Extension (DAE) of Bangladesh who work in the lowest administrative unit of a upazila called block and responsible for carrying out extension service to the rural clienteles. Attempts were also made to explore the relationships between the selected characteristics of the grass root level extension workers and their extent of information seeking behavior. Chawgacha, Jhikargacha and Jessore Sadar upazila under Jessore district of Bangladesh were selected as the study area. Seventy (70) SAAOs were working in the selected three upazilas and all of them were interviewed for the purpose of the study. The findings reveal that 64.30% of the respondents were frequently seeking information for updating their knowledge and skills. Pearson Product-Moment Correlation Co-efficient (r) reveals that job satisfaction and aspiration for training had positive significant relationship while age, experience of extension work, annual expenditure, motivation for searching job related information, organizational problem confrontation and technical knowledge had no significant relationship with SAAOs’ information seeking behavior.

The Impact of China – African trade on economic growth of African countries Authors: Enock Mwakalila, Joseph AKA & Tawanda Mukazhi

The Impact of China – African trade on economic growth of African countries

Authors: Enock Mwakalila, Joseph AKA & Tawanda Mukazhi

Abstract

There is no doubt that trade play a major role in economic growth and development of the country. But this notion has met with critical debate and controversies on the influence of trade on improving economic growth between countries, with some studied arguing that trade can actually harm the economy of at least one of the two countries. The trade between china and Africa is no exception to this. Therefore this study empirically analyzed the impact of trade between china and Africa on the economic growth of African countries. The panel data involving 41 African countries spanning 24 years (1992-2016) were collected and analyzed through pooled OLS, fixed effect and Arellano-Bond/Blundell-Bond models. The results showed that in all estimation techniques African trade with china appeared to benefit the former on improving its economic growth.

Effect of Informational Interface of Mobile Application Technology on the Growth of SACCOS in Nairobi County, Kenya Authors: Emily Jerop, Samson Nyang’au Paul & Mwalili Tobias

Effect of Informational Interface of Mobile Application Technology on the Growth of SACCOS in Nairobi County, Kenya

Authors: Emily Jerop, Samson Nyang’au Paul & Mwalili Tobias

Abstract

A large proportion of Kenyans relies on SACCO’s to access financial services. However, the use of SACCOs (Savings and Credit Co-operative Societies) by Kenyans as a financial service provider has been declining over the last five years. This trend in loss of customers is attributed to the competition from banks through proactive outreach and offering of easy access transactions accounts as well as consumer loans through financial innovations. It is therefore imperative that the SACCOs invest heavily on the use of Mobile Application Technology. The purpose of carrying out this study therefore was to establish the influence of effect of Informational Interface of Mobile Application Technology on the Growth of SACCOS in Nairobi County, Kenya. Descriptive Survey design was adopted. The study target population included 40 deposit taking SACCOs, 200 section heads and 40 managers. The study sampled 23 SACCOs using Krejcie and Morgan, 23 managers and 116 section heads. Simple random sampling and stratified sampling method was used to select the sampled respondents. The study used questionnaire to collect data. Collected data was coded and analyzed suing descriptive statistics (frequencies and percentages) as well as statistical inferential (regression analysis). The analyzed data was presented in tables, finding discussed, conclusions drawn and policy implications outlined. The study concluded that mobile application provides an interface that allowed the SACCO clients to access information on their balance without necessarily visiting the SACCO physically. It allows client to client payment and therefore ensures that their clients make their payment effectively and on time. The study also recommends that since the use of mobile application technology was found to influence the growth of SACCOs in Nairobi County, there is need to understand the changes that technology is causing on the financial sector in order to examine in detail how the recent and foreseeable advances in technology can affect its future evolution.

 Key words: SACCO’s, transactions accounts, Mobile Application Technology, Informational Interface, client payment.

Authors: Saima Shiddiqua, Md. Mahbubul Alam, PhD & Dr. Md. Sekender Ali

Abstract

The primary objectives of this study were i) to determine the extent of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) use by farmers for receiving agricultural market information, and ii) to identify the factors that influence farmers’ choice of using ICTs for receiving agricultural market information. Attempt was also made to explore the influence of the selected factors to the extent of ICTs use for receiving agricultural market information. A cross-sectional survey methodology use employed. Two villages from Rajbari sadar upazila under Rajbari district were selected as the study area. A proportionate random sampling technique was used to determine the sample size (here, 127) drawn from 620 farm families. Data were collected by the 1st author using a well-structured interview schedule. A multiple regression analysis revealed that ICT ownership, ICT literacy, distance home to market and innovativeness had significant contribution to farmers’ use of ICTs for receiving agricultural market information which explained 81.8% of the variance of ICTs use however perceived usefulness was found to be non-significant to ICTs use.

Authors: Fatema-Tuz-Zohra, Md. Abul Bashar & Mohammad Zamshed Alam

Abstract

The study examined the status of adoption of BRRI dhan29 production technologies and estimated the contribution of the selected characteristics of the farmers to the adoption of production technologies. The methodology of this study is an integration of quantitative and qualitative data collected in Sonatala and Dohopara villages of Sariakandi upazila in Bogra district. Data were collected from 117 BRRI dhan29 growers from January 06 to February 05, 2017. Descriptive statistics, multiple regression were used for data analysis. Most of the farmers (67.5 percent) belong to medium adoption followed by high adoption (18.8 percent) BRRI dhan29 production technologies. Among the variables- age, level of education, farming experience, attitude towards rice cultivation, usage of ICT in agriculture, organizational participation and knowledge on rice production were the significant contributor and provided 59.3 percent contribution on adoption of BRRI dhan29 production technologies. It was also found that 4.2%,  15.3%,  41.1%, 31.5%  and  6.9% farmers were innovators, early adopters, early majority, late majority, and laggards respectively regarding BRRI dhan29  adoption.  It is concluded that the composite adoption of BRRI dhan29 production technologies is moderate and needs further advancement. Based on the findings, it is recommended that respective authorities should implement and popularize farmers based projects on a massive scale for the adoption of BRRI dhan29 production technologies.

Key words: BRRI Dhan29, Technologies, rice cultivation, adopters, adoption.

Total Quality Management in Education

Authors: Uzma Rasool Khan, Samreen Khan, Sania M. Aslam, Sana Mateen & Nawal Punhal

Abstract

The main purpose of this paper is to analyze the thoughts of the modern era paradigm on Total quality management “TQM” and its application in the field of education. This research also explores the adoption of total quality management in the field of education. Our research starts with the background theory/ literature review and then outline the result of the study, conducted by the students to obtain the different perspective on Total quality management in education. We applied survey methodology and selected questionnaire as an instrument. We used Multiple Regression to analyze the effect of TQM in education. By testing the hypothesis we have found out that the two sectors (government and educational institutions) agreed to adopt the concept of TQM except for the parental sector. This sector needs improvement. In our research F- statistics indicate positive results. It means that adoption of TQM in education gives you an excellent result in the overall system. As we can say that adoption of total quality management in education can ascertain more effective institutional change with success. As a result, this research proposed a theory which is obtained from TQM i.e. institutional change environment, sustainable success, and innovation which express the relationship between the educational institutions and the role of total quality management.

Point of Purchase Displays and Fixtures; Rationale for acceptance in Kenya Supermarkets Authors: Beatrice Matiri Maisori & Dr. Mary Kinoti

Point of Purchase Displays and Fixtures; Rationale for acceptance in Kenya Supermarkets

Authors: Beatrice Matiri Maisori & Dr. Mary Kinoti

Abstract

A key challenge of many Kenyan supermarkets is competition in brands’ visibility and availability which are two key aspects impacting probability of purchase. Marketers thus employ Point of Purchase (POP) advertising and signage and provide POP displays to enhance visibility and achieve communication. This study surveys the aspects impacting acceptance of Point of Purchase (POP) Displays and Fixtures by Supermarkets in Kenya.  The findings of the study will benefit the fast moving consumer goods distribution supply chain, the academia as well as government tax departments. The study is a descriptive survey of 31 supermarkets in Kenya. Data was collected using a questionnaire and an observation was done of the POP Displays and Fixtures used in the supermarkets.  The data collected was analyzed using descriptive techniques. The findings were presented using qualitative approaches. Three main aspects were identified; space constraints, willingness of the supermarket management to carry out the promotions and forms of displays availed.  In addition, the supermarket owners valued good relationships with product owners, joint POP design and support in cash incentives. The study recommends studies to examine the extent these aspects affect acceptance as well as exploration of POP as a form of Sales Promotion, its effectiveness and what extent of their use will generate optimal sales.

Comparative Study of Feeding Probiotic (A-Max®) and Growth Promoter on Growth Performance of Commercial Broiler Authors: Md. Shahinur Rahman, Sabbir HossenSabuz, Professor Dr. Ummay Salma & Md. Nurul Amin

Comparative Study of Feeding Probiotic (A-Max®) and Growth Promoter on Growth Performance of Commercial Broiler

Abstract

An experiment was conducted with 120 Cobb-500 Broiler day old chicks to evaluate the effect of feeding probiotic (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) with or without growth promoter (GP). Birds were reared in open sided shed type house. Body weight and feed intake were measured and examined on day 0, 7, 14, 21, 28 and 32. Chicks were randomly divided into four groups having three replications. The number of birds in each replication was 10. Four diets were considered: control; probiotic (PB) @ 1ml/liter; GP @ 100g/50kg and GP plus PB (@ 1ml/liter+ 100g/50kg). The records were kept on body weight, feed intake and mortality while weight gain, feed efficiency (FE) and survivability were calculated. Temperature and humidity were recorded four times daily. At the end of the experiment, one broiler was sacrificed from each replication to determine carcass characteristics. Broiler chicks that received PB and a combination of PB+GP treatments showed significant improvement in performance (p<0.01) over control with respect to body weight gain, feed efficiency, carcass yield and cost effectiveness. Feeding GP alone had comparatively less weight gain, net profit and almost similar feed efficiency compared with PB and GP+PB groups but it’s performance was significantly better than that of control group. This study indicated that the diet containing GP+PB offered slightly increased benefits to the growth performance of broilers, and these benefits were almost equal to the PB. It is revealed that probiotic (A-MAX) supplementation with growth promoter is beneficial for broiler production and no hazard on human health.

Key words: Probiotic, Growth promoter, body weight gain, feed efficiency, carcass yield and cost effectiveness.

Authors: Farzana Yeasmin Popy, Q M Monzur Kader Chowdhury, Shahrul Alam, Sawrab Roy, Prantho Malakar Dipta & Juned Ahmed

Abstract

Backyard poultry is one of the key sources of protein for the rural people of Bangladesh. This study was carried out in the Barlekha upazila under Moulvibazar district of Bangladesh with the aim of assessing the management system and production performance of backyard poultry. Data were collected from 26 randomly selected households in the Barlekha upazila and analysed statistically. Farmers in the study area were low producers having average flock size of chicken, duck, geese and pigeon were 6.5, 6, 5, and 4 respectively. Most (53.85%) of the poultry houses were made shortly with wood and tin. Litter materials used by the farmers were sand, ash, rice husk and jute bags. About 15.38% farmers did not use any litter materials in their poultry houses. About 38.46% farmers provided boiled rice, rice polish and broken rice. About 15.38% of the farmers provided additional paddy, rice or wheat along that. Pond water, tube well water and water from nearby river and canals were supplied by 46.15%, 30.78% and 23.08% farmers respectively. Almost all the poultry raisers reared their poultry through free-range scavenging system. In 84.62% of the households, women were the main poultry raisers. Most (69.23%) of the farmers did not vaccinate their poultry. Newcastle disease was identified as the major threat to the backyard poultry. Two causes of death of poultry were identified – 76.92% due to different diseases and 23.08% death due to predators. Egg production of chicken and duck were 30-45/year and 60-80/ year respectively.
