Effect of Entrepreneurship Education on Growth of Enterprises owned by Entrepreneurs with Disabilities in Bungoma County, Kenya

Elizabeth Wasike, Sarah Likoko

This paper addresses the effect of entrepreneurship education on growth of enterprises owned by entrepreneurs with disabilities (EWDs) in Bungoma County. Data was collected from Entrepreneurs with Disabilities (EWDs) using structured questions. The researcher sought to answer questions about the effect of acquisition of entrepreneurship education towards achieving growth. Key findings were that the majority of the EWDs are involved in retail trade. Most of them had started their own businesses using their own savings and had previously closed a business because it wasnt profitable. The results show that two thirds of the EWDs lacked entrepreneurship education and did not have any business skills training with the majority that received training saying that it was through apprenticeship. Two thirds of the EWDs claimed not to belong to any association thus starving their businesses of the benefits of these networks. A majority of the EWDs hoped to grow their businesses with most of them hoping to hire between 1 and 3 employees in the next 5 years. This paper will provide a realistic and important benchmark for EWDs research. It gives an excellent view of the environment and the mindsets of these entrepreneurs.
