Mrs Eunice is an entrepreneur and she has a small retail outlet down her street, where she sells consumables. With the outbreak of the infinitude COVID-19 pandemic, which forced the lock-down of all sector of the country’s economy, Mrs Eunice’s small retail outlet was not an exemption from the enforcement of the lock down policy. As a result of this development, her family’s resource for sustainability and survival was at stake!
