The effect of poverty is usually reflected differently among the groups in a society such as the women, children, elderly, homeless and the disabled.

The main purpose of this chapter is to provide an outline of the research methods that will be used and to explain the procedures that will be employed to collect the data in the intended study. Since the scope of the study has been determined, and its aim and objectives have also been identified, it is very important to outline the methodology that will be adopted to pursue the issues relating to the research questions. This involves indicating the particular research philosophy and strategic approach that will be assumed by the researcher. Research is a systematic investigation to increase the sum of knowledge (Fellows and Liu, 2003). Marshal and Rossman (2006) define research as a systematic inquiry to provide a better understanding of
