The influence of the Craft Industry on the Economic Lives of Women of the Kukuo Community in the Tamale Metropolis

Abstract

Indigenous small scale enterprises, that have operated to provide for the need of Ghanaians for a while now, have been left behind for the good things to be brought from outside.  Despite the enormous potential contribution of the craft industry, lately it has received little attention from both policy makers as well as the indigenous themselves.  The main objective set out in this study is to assess the contribution of the craft industry to the economic development of Kukuo as a community and Ghana as a whole.  The study addresses a number of key issues relating to its subject matter.  The first issue is to clearly describe the nature of the Craft industry, its economic impact on people including job creation especially for women and the youth, and the existing potentials of the industry.  The second issue is to review and examine the role of the policy makers, governments and other stakeholders in the development of the industry.
