ENTERPRISE PARTNERS (EP) is a social enterprise established in March 2013 to facilitate markets’ development in order to create jobs and raise incomes of Ethiopians living with poverty, particularly women.

EP works critically towards a women-/ and environment-inclusive growth, by promoting investments, which are also aligned with Government of Ethiopia (GoE)’s priority sectors, particularly GoE’s Second Five-Years (2015-2020) Growth & Transformation Plan (GTP II). Running until 2020, EP works with pertinent market actors, including the private sector, to resolve identified market constraints in the stated sectors that will have a commercially viable and environmentally sustainable effect.

Throughout our activities, we focus on making our interventions be able to create opportunities for a sustainable, environment friendly, and Green Growth (GG) as well as Women’s Economic Empowerment (WEE).




EP catalyses markets’ development in four  sectors through implementing various intervention programmes within these sectors that use grant fund in combination with technical assistance.
