How does import business work in Ethiopia

I would like to import goods/consumables to Ethiopia and distribute at wholesale price.
1. Is is cheap to get a very small outlet/shop near Kazaenches or Merkato if possible? How long would it take to get one? How much would average rent be for a 10 by 10 feet?

2. What percentage of the cost of goods would be the average import tax?

3. I have my own idea, but what kind of import goods/consumables are assumed profitable in current ethiopian market?
