“The greatest challenge for Small Businesses during the lockdown because of COVID-19 is inadequate cash flow due to a lack of customers, and a substantial drop in sales. This trial leads to many small businesses throughout the nation struggling to stay in business, especially those in key sectors such as hospitality, tourism and retail”, stated Mike Anderson, NSBC Founder and CEO.
