Abstract

Author(s): Iniobong A. AKPABIO, Caroline C. ABOH

The study attempted to examine beneficiary perceptions on factors influencing the various successes recorded by selected WNGOs in Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. A sample size of 120 respondents from 24 Local Women Groups (LWGs) that are affiliated to three successful WNGOs (as declared by the State Government) was utilized for the study. Data analysis was with the aid of descriptive and inferential statistics. Results revealed that WNGOs empowerment activities are not selective, but targeted at a broad-spectrum of rural women groupings. Three of the five likely factors affecting the successes recorded by WNGOs with LWGs, were revealed to exert significant influences. These are WNGOs ability to fulfill beneficiaries’ expectation; high volume of credit provision and low income of beneficiaries. Recommendations are proffered to assist non-successful or emerging WNGOs, to record successes in their activities.
