UNCDF Launches Survey on the Socio-Economic Impact of COVID-19 on SMEs in LDCs
The economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been – and will be – profound, especially on small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the world’s least developed countries (LDCs). However, a lack of accurate and precise information about the challenges faced by SME’s in LDCs is impeding the design of appropriate and effective responses.
Therefore, the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) and its partners have launched a survey to gather information directly from SME business leaders on how they are operating and adapting during the COVID-19 crisis. A selected number of respondents will be chosen to participate as presenters for promotional events conducted during the summer and fall of 2020. Development partners are encouraged to disseminate the survey widely to gather as much meaningful information as possible and understand how to support SMEs in LDCs during and after the pandemic.
