National Survey on Micro & Small Enterprises in Ethiopia
Veritas Consulting conducted a national urban study covering 2,606 Micro and Small Enterprises (MSEs) in Ethiopia. The objective of this study was to examine the extent of growth of the MSE sector, the drivers of growth, and the constraints to growth. A particular focus of the study was the extent to which services varied for MSEs based on the gender of ownership, geography, or age segment. The output of the study informed strategies and interventions by the Ethiopian Federal Micro and Small Enterprise Development Agency (FeMSEDA), the 2015- 2020 Growth and Transformation Plan, and the Canadian Government in targeting its support to Ethiopian MSEs.
