3. Brick Making
Construction of houses, offices, malls, government buildings, etc. has seen a veritable explosion in Ethiopia. But this boon in the construction sector is not limited to huge companies with massive financial resources.
Small to medium businesses can also take part and profit very well from the construction boom in Ethiopia.
One automatic brick making machine costs in the range of about 29,180 ETB or 1,080 USD.
The biggest challenge that currently is an obstacle for brick making in Ethiopia is the access to land from the government and the need for a constant supply of water, which is essential for mass production of brick blocks.
Some water related obstacles could be alleviated through the use of water containers in the ground, above ground water tanks, and wooden pallets to raise the blocks till they harden.
