The International Journal of Computational Engineering and Management (IJCEM) is an Open Access, Indexed, Peer Reviewed International Journal with a key objective to provide Academic, Industrial and Scientific Community a medium for presenting original cutting edge research related to Computational Science, Management, Engineering and Technology disciplines and their applications.
IJCEM invites authors to submit their original and unpublished work that communicates current research on Computational Sciences, Engineering, Management disciplines on Theoretical, Methodological and Practical Aspects, as well as their applications from real world problems like Science, Business, Commerce, Engineering and Technology.
Prospective authors should note that only original and previously unpublished manuscripts will be considered. Furthermore, simultaneous submissions are not acceptable.
Submission of a manuscript is interpreted as a statement of certification that no part of the manuscript is copyrighted by any other publication nor is under review by any other formal publication. It is the primary responsibility of the author to obtain proper permission for the use of any copyrighted materials in the manuscript, prior to the submission of the manuscript to International Journal of Computational Engineering and Management (IJCEM).
The International Journal of Computational Engineering and Management (IJCEM), the only English Language Journal in the Computational Science and Management fields published in India, is an international forum for academicians, researchers, engineers and scientists involved in all aspects of Computational Science, Management, Engineering and Technology to publish high quality, refereed papers.
The journal offers survey, experimental and review articles/research papers from experts in the field, promoting insight, state of the art understanding, and trends in Technology and Management. Contents include original research and innovative applications from all parts of the world. The papers for publication in IJCEM are selected through rigorous peer reviews to ensure originality, timeliness, relevance and readability. IJCEM presents mostly previously unpublished materials, selected conference papers with exceptional merit are also published, at the discretion of the editors.
The increased need for appropriate credit in the agricultural industry has forced agripreneurs to continuously explore ways to obtain credit with favorable terms and conditions to develop and grow their agribusinesses. Lack of adequate credit from formal financial institutions has been prominently highlighted as one of the main factors that contribute to underperformance in the agricultural enterprise sector in Kenya.
To mitigate this challenge, smallholder agripreneurs have had to explore ways of getting credit from the informal financial sector. This study used descriptive design method which endeavoured to investigate the significance of credit from traders and processors on the performance of the smallholder agripreneurs in terms of production, land expansion, job creation and amount of income realized. The study was guided by credit from traders and processors as the independent variable and performance of smallholder agripreneurs as the dependent variable. The study found out that credit from traders and processors had a significant influence on the performance of the smallholder agripreneurs in Kenya. The conclusion of the study was that, credit from traders and processors was imperative for the successful development and growth of the smallholder agripreneurs’ horticultural enterprises. The study recommended a formal recognition, registration; legislation and support for traders and processors as a vital source of credit for agripreneurs.
