|Abstract: ||Through no conscientious strategic policy orientation, rural women in the Kassena-Nankani District are making a perceptible impact on household poverty reduction in their domain. They do it through their engagement in non-farm economic activities. On the basis of a number of pointers, the results of this research show that non-farm small enterprises activities constitute major sources of employment and income generation to rural women from which they make a contribution to household expenditure. The rural women entrepreneurs are able to support the provision of basic household needs and the development of sustainable household livelihood systems. Through that, industrious women are able to gain social recognition and respect at the household and community levels. To improve the situation and optimise the contribution of rural women to household poverty reduction, the study recommends the promotion of non-farm based employment for rural women.|
