I am a small time entrepreneur based in Johannesburg doing my bit to create employment and alleviate poverty. Like most business here in South Africa all my business have been negatively affected by government lockdowns. The economic condition have also added to the woes resulting in a decline in the demand for our services and families struggling. We have a construction, cleaning services and professional business consulting services. The construction and cleaning services have been most negatively affected. Workers in those areas are semi-skilled and many semi-illiterate and breadwinners. We have been using our consulting services revenue for sometime but will not be able to these for a forseeable future.
