SADIQ, Mohammed Sanusi  e  SANI, Bashir Sanyinna. Job satisfaction and agripreneurial success of microfinance beneficiary small-scale rice processors in Nigeria’s Jigawa state. Siembra [online]. 2023, vol.10, n.1, e4064. ISSN 2477-8850.

Limitation of research information on job satisfaction and enterprise success-remunerative business going concern of rice value chain actors especially the processors has been a challenge to the sustainability of the supportive policy driven rice value chain in the study area. Therefore, this necessitates research so as to identify the possible pitfalls alongside proffer viable scientific remedies that will enhance the sustainability of the entire rice value chain in the study area. Using a cross-sectional data obtained from a total of 133 and 67 par-boilers and millers respectively, through a well-structured questionnaire and interview schedule, the job satisfaction and agripreneurial success of micro-finance benefitted rice processors in Nigeria’s Jigawa state were investigated. Unlike the millers, it was established that majority of the par-boilers were not satisfied with the job and it owes majorly to poor job security and disincentive attitude of the supportive institutions. However, across the study target groups, despite the few hitches, majority of the enterprises were found to be successful and mutually owes to remunerative turnover ratio of the enterprise among others. Nonetheless, vulnerable household’s composition which exacerbates the pressure on the limited resources with negative consequence on the income capital base affected job satisfaction and agripreneurial success of the processors. Therefore, the study advises the policymakers to strength the macro-economic policies so as to enhance the sustainability of the entire rice value chain in the study area. Also, concerned stakeholders involved in policymaking need to intensify their campaign on the importance of sustainable livelihood by encouraging most of the actors to maintain a fair household size.
