As Ethiopia grows towards middle-income status (targeted by 2025), PEPE’s emphasis is to enhance the productivity and competitiveness of Agro-Industrial sectors while improving the performance of the financial sector. PEPE, critically, works towards a growth that is inclusive of women & the environment, in line with the government’s plans.

PEPE, which runs from 2013-2020, is a £70m programme funded by DfID and implemented, in part[1], by a DAI-Europe led consortium which includes First Consult, ITAD, Enclude and BCaD from 2013-2020 in Ethiopia. The DAI-Europe led consortium for Enterprise Partners is £43 million contract.

Enterprise Partners (PEPE’s M4P pillar) aims to facilitate market development in four sectors in order to spur innovation and investment (20% green) by firms that create jobs (75% for women) & increase incomes of poor people. It uses a £15m grant fund in combination with technical assistance to facilitate markets, following the M4P[2] approach, which emphasizes on:-

  • Resolving market failures:Through diagnostics, markets that are not working for the poor are identified and determined for feasibility to intervene. This includes the markets for goods, services, and labour. The improvements sought could be where the poor are as sellers (e.g. higher wages, better working terms/conditions, higher product margins, and increased sales volumes) or where they are buyers (e.g. lower prices, greater access and choice) in the transaction. Interventions are transaction-specific, and not across a value-chain spectrum.
  • Facilitation:Enterprise Partners positivelyinfluences markets by working through partners. By providing innovations and grants to market actors to de-risk innovation/change, it aims to catalyse further investments in proven, bankable enterprise. This avoids distorting markets as a result of donor funds and promotes sustainability, but requires good understanding of the political economy (incentives) of actors in the sector (to identify the ‘catalysts’ and ‘scale agents’) as well as a disaggregation of the chosen transaction into supporting functions (e.g. information,  skills) and rules (e.g. standards, regulations, norms). Intervening at this sub-level of the transaction enables the market change to be scalable and the impact sustainable.

Agro-Industrial & Finance Sectors

Enterprise Partners’ supports the Cotton-Textile-Apparel, Livestock-Leather and Fruits & Vegetables sectors in the Agro-Industrials and Base of the Pyramid, SME and Large Enterprises in the Financials. In these sectors, Enterprise Partners targets the creation of 45,000 jobs and the improvement of 60,000 household incomes via the generation of £284m in investments by 2020.
