Coping with COVID-19

The report discusses what the LMI segments know, understand, and feel about the COVID-19 outbreak and examines its effect on them. The report also highlights actionable recommendations for policymakers to design suitable interventions that can help the LMI segment cope better in this difficult situation.

MSC conducted a research to understand how the low- and middle-income (LMI) segments cope with the #COVID-19 pandemic. To examine how this pandemic has affected their lives, we spoke with 604 low- and moderate-income households across Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Kenya, and Uganda. Our report offers a glimpse into their remarkable achievements, underlying challenges, shocking misery, and new opportunities in these trying times.
