3.4. Study population

William fox (1992:06) defines population as «a set of cases from which a sample is drawn and to which a researcher wants to generalize». He continues by asserting that population is data pertaining to all or almost all cases to which a researcher wants to generalize.

For any study to succeed, information needs to be representative of the population covered by the research questions. A population refers to the total number of elements covered by the research questions (Scott, Iet al 1998:307).

«Population can be defined as the totality of persons or objects with which a study is concerned». Grinnell et al (1990:118).

Christensen (1991:101) asserts that, population refers to all the events, things or individuals that are the objects of investigation. This research is made to study the relationship between small and medium enterprises and rural development in Rwanda, thus the researcher surveyed a selected unit (enterprise) techniqually determined. The population under study was comprised of stakeholders of enterprise.

3. 4. 1. Population determination

As it has been indicated above, given the width of this topic under study, the population is also wide as it is located in rural areas where agriculture dominates. Despite the fact that the population under this study is derived from a selected enterprise and this population is formed by cultivators working with enterprise.
