Will businesses resume to normal after the Covid-19 Pandemic? How will businesses bounce back after experiencing an unforeseen event? After losing a job, is it feasible to start a business? These are some of the questions that most people are asking. Whether they are a small business owner, an employee, or an ordinary person, everyone is affected by this pandemic.

With the government allowing a certain percentage of businesses to operate in the Philippines, some businesses are starting to cope with the loss they had experience for the past four months. But what about those businesses that has no other choice but to close due to loss? Based on research, small businesses with less than 20 employees have a cash flow good for 2-3 weeks only they are the first ones to close even before the heights of the pandemic.

While other businesses close down, some businesses start to thrive like those in food and beverage, delivery services, grocery items and services, and new business natures like “Pabili” or “Pasabuy” where people will look for motorcycle riders to buy goods or fresh food for them via online.
