Findings from the study revealed that policy thrust, capacity building and provision of capital resources was discovered in concrete terms to revamp the illness of small and medium scale enterprises.We equally found that strengthening government commissions, agencies and directorates will unlock the multifarious challenges confronting entrepreneurship culture to lessen poverty.Finally, this paper passionately recommended for establishment of cooperatives, proven financial policies, expanding SMEs projects to the local governments, legislations and vigorous political will.Future research direction suggested for a quantitative research approach from the beneficiaries and participants of poverty alleviation programs in the study area
