Abstract: This study was undertaken to assess the influence of child labour participation on the poverty profile of cassava processors in Odeda Local Government Area of Ogun State. It also examined the socio-economic characteristics of the respondents involved in cassava processing in the study area. FGT model was used to analyse the poverty profile of cassava processors while descriptive statistics were used to describe the socio-economic characteristics of cassava processing households in the study area using primary data set. A poverty line of NI775.6 was determined using two-third mean per capita household expenditure. The study finds that poverty bears a direct link with child labour and therefore suggests that Government should focus on improving the income generating capacity of the rural people through allocation of financial resources to small-scale cassava processors in the area.
