Program Summary

As people limit their movement to prevent the spread of COVID-19, businesses across the globe are suffering. What is the scale of that impact and how are MSMEs coping? CFI’s data dashboards provide insights from four countries.

In June 2020, CFI began a longitudinal survey examining how COVID-19 is impacting MSMEs in four countries: Colombia, India, Indonesia, and Nigeria. Users of this interactive data dashboard can explore how MSME owners are responding to the crisis, and they can dive deeper to view results of the survey based on different market segments – including men and women, firms of different size, and different types of businesses.

Currently, the dashboard features data from randomly drawn samples of MSMEs in Lagos, Nigeria and Indonesia. The dashboards will be updated regularly as each survey wave in each country is completed and as CFI completes additional visualizations. CFI’s analysis of the data will be made available in blogs, briefs, and reports.
