This is so helpful.

I run a cooperative in south east Nigeria and with the lockdown in place, we already forsee a liquidity crisis when this lockdown is lifted.

A lifeline in the form of low interest loans or repayable grants will help Cooperatives from going under.

Sadly the regulators and government interventions focus on banks and Microfinance banks leaving out the coops who are truly the last mile service providers to people at the base of the pyramid.

I hope help comes. And fast too.
