Discipline: Social Entrepreneurship



Many researches have identified the entrepreneurs’ chance of success. Current studies found that the opportunity of an enterprise to grow o survive depends largely on the personality of the entrepreneur. This study aimed to determine the relationship between entrepreneurial motives and the productivity level of micro-finance enterprises in terms of survival. Growth and return on investment (ROI) have no significant relationship with entrepreneurial motives. The results of this study will drive individuals to engage in small to micro business enterprises and provide learning to improve standard of living. It will also encourage government agencies to support the communities and encourage entrepreneurship.
