Funding Youth Entrepreneurship in SMEs: A Panacea for Youth Unemployment in Niger-Delta , Nigeria

The objective of this study was to identify profitable and viable small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), which could form a basis for a youth economic empowerment programme in the crisis-torn Niger  Delta Region. Data analysed formed a basis for identifying profitable enterprises, and preparing financial proposals. The proposals can be used to source funds, which would enable youth to either work with  the identified SMEs or expand existing ones.
