The Introduction of structural adjustment policies saw many people being retrenched from their previous jobs. This led many to found small-scale businesses.

In chapter three the researcher gives the methodology used to achieve the study objectives. The study was located at Kawangware and Kangemi. The researcher targeted small-scale timber business. To collect data the researcher used interview schedules. The data was thereafter analysed using descriptive statistics. The result of the study show that small-scale timber business were being affected by shortage of timber, poor quality of timber, complicated government legislation and in adequate capital to cope with fluctuating timber prises. The study concludes if these conditions persist the small-scale business will continue to decline. It is however possible to reverse this trend if minimum measures are put in place to ensure sustainable production and marketing of timber.en_US
