The situation is no different in Ghana, with majority of main stream working force, both government and private being asked to stay at home as a result of the pandemic with salaries slashed to half while others unfortunately loses their jobs and a a result their source of income completely.
The small business owners, entrepreneurs and those that are self employed by means of either plying a trade or engaged in some economic activities by which they depend on selling a product or offering service to the general public have been the hardest hit within this crisis. As a great majority of this demographic rely on their daily wages and earnings to cater for themselves, their families and to refuel their businesses.
