    USAID-PROLoG Grant Impacts Lives of People Affected by COVID-19 Pandemic

    The COVID-19 crisis is having a substantial impact on all aspects of our lives. The impending economic crisis will lead to job losses, lower incomes, and increased poverty globally and it has negatively affected the labor market and labor relations in Georgia. The government imposed strict restrictions to fight the virus spread, causing closure of businesses during the state of emergency and quarantine for almost two months. To respond to the emerging economic crisis within the country caused by the virus outbreak, the government announced the possibility of compensation ̶ one-time financial support of 300 GEL ̶ for employed and self-employed people affected by the state regulations during the pandemic. Unfortunately, many self-employed people working in the street markets and informal trade sector were unable to receive the compensation since they could not present documentation proving their self-employment. The market administration also did not give them necessary documentation.
