Poverty remains a greatest challenge for the rural households of the sub Saharan Africa and a number of interventions are proposed to alleviate poverty. Rural non-farm enterprises are seen as a possible partner to farm enterprises to reduce poverty as there are robust production linkages between the two. On the other hand social networks have been seen to play an important role in the development of small-scale rural non-farm enterprises. This paper explores the social networks and small-scale rural non-farm enterprises development nexus implications to poverty reduction and then suggests possible policy implications.
Key words: Social capital, social networks, non-farm enterprises, poverty reduction.
