ABSTRACT

This research seeks to analyze the contribution of the informal sector to the urban social and

economic development particularly the furniture manufacturing industries in Glenview area 8.the

furniture manufacturing complex was established by the government in 2005 after the

devastating Operation Murambatsvina as a compensatory measure to the victims of the clean-up

campaign. The government constructed the complex after they realized that many people were

left with no sources of income since many urban dwellers were earning their livelihoods from the

informal industries. First chapter of this study gives a general overview of the growth of the

informal industries in Zimbabwe and the furniture manufacturing industries in Glenview area 8

in particular. The second chapter gives detailed findings of the impacts of the furniture

manufacturing industries to the urban social and economic development in a country with

characterized by high unemployment rate and liquidity crunch. The high unemployment rate is

perpetuating the rapid growth of the informal industries as many companies and industries are

closing down and some retrenching workers day by day. This study also identified various

challenges being faced by the informal industries which is hindering their growth into bigger

firms. This research also tried to came up with suggested recommendations on the problems

faced by the informal industries.
