    Abstract

    One type of assistance that was granted by the management and administration of the charity to ensure that the poor and needy recipients can improve their living standards is by assistance in the form of business capital. Capital grants are expected to generate long-term income and help to transform them to be an entrepreneur and then can also turn them to become a payer of zakat instead of recipients of zakat. However, many beneficiaries have failed and the main reason given is a problem related to the capita!. The question is whether the problem of capital was the most important factor that causing the failure, or there may be other factors that are equally important concern. Therefore this study was to examine factors other than the expected significant capital that can influence the success or failure of the development on the poor and needy recipients. This study is using a binomial logit model on the 534 recipients who had received business capital assistance in Selangor and Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur. The study found that there were other factors besides capital that also significantly affect the success of the business which are age, sex, duration of business, the monitoring, and the nature of business, the efficiency in management of zakat, optimism, social skills, social networks, and risk takers. Hence, the important implication of this study is the development strategies for poor and needy recipients are not sufficient if it's only focused on the aspects of capital assistance, but it must also be accompanied and complemented by other important factors.
