Abstract

In a phone survey of 2,739 small retailers in and around Nairobi, researchers gathered evidence of the economic effects of COVID-19, and the impacts of subsequent government actions. The responses suggest widespread negative impacts on business activity and household well-being, with little or no assistance from the government, NGOs or other entities. Jon Helfers, Billy Jack, Martha Mutua, Josiah Muyesu, Chris Parker, and Whitney Tate suggest policy actions to deal with the fallout of the pandemic.
