Palm Fruits Processing And Rural Infrastructural Development in Imo State, Nigeria

AE Onweagbu, EC Nwaihu, EC Nwaihu

Abstract




The study was an attempt to estimate the gross income accruing to women palm oil and palm kernel processors in three Local Government Areas: Aboh-Mbaise, Obowo and Ezinihitte areas of Imo State. Thereafter their contributions towards rural infrastructural development were assessed based on gross income calculations. The gross income realized was reasonable for meaningful rural development projects, although full participation in rural development infrastructure was hindered by certain socioeconomic constraints posed mainly by societal gender inequality.
