The study focused on the Assessment of manufacturing project financing in the case of commercial bank of Ethiopia. Cross sectional descriptive survey design was employed. The case study involved 88 respondents comprising of all the technical staff from the three sub departments of credit process center in Commercial Bank of Ethiopia, namely credit appraisal, credit follow up and credit risk management. a descriptive analysis was used to assess the loan appraisal, financial viability, technical feasibility, credit rating, credit follow-up, risk transfer, risk diversification, risk retention and loan performance. The findings indicated that loan appraisal, credit rating, financial viability, technical feasibility; credit risk management are the main influential factors in manufacturing project financing. Finally, the researcher recommended to the Bank to give a due emphasis on project loan appraisals with different approaches from traditional financing and take appropriate credit follow-up procedures after disbursement of the project loan since failing to do so will be adverse on performance. Similarly, the bank should minimize risks on this newly entered financing through employing various credit risk management techniques, including transfer, diversification and technical retention.
