LIWAY aims to address critical constraints to improve the products, productivity, profitability and competitiveness of medium & large enterprises (MLEs) in the manufacturing sector and drive creation of more and higher-paying jobs for poor women and youth.

This overview is the result of a market analysis in Addis Ababa.

LIWAY identified the following critical constraints that have the potential for change, resulting in growth for targeted MLEs and therefore enabling new jobs and higher wages for poor women and youth:

  • Inadequate human resource management skills
  • Absence of performance management systems
  • Shortage of input supply 
  • Ineffective production management
  • Underinvestment in sales & marketing
