The main objective of the Project, implemented by UNIDO in different phases, is to increase the competitiveness and turnover of clusters of micro, small and medium enterprises in the leather sector, both formal and informal. This will be achieved through an up-grading of technical and managerial capacities at firm level, and through the introduction of common strategies, a formalized organizational set up and coordination mechanisms at cluster level. In line with the Micro and Small Enterprises Development Strategy of the Government of Ethiopia, and in collaboration with the Ethiopian Leather Industry Development Institute, the Project focuses on micro entrepreneurs in order to increase their productivity, turnover and employment level. The selected clusters are located in Addis Ababa (Yeka - shoe produces, Kirkos - garment and accessories producers, and Merkato - shoe producers). read more close
