In Mexico, MSMEs contribute 78 percent of employment and are responsible for 52 percent of the country's Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Today, they are in a moment of great vulnerability and uncertainty in the face of social isolation, since the vast majority live on the sales that are made every day.
UENI, a business technology services startup based in the United Kingdom, is conducting a study on mental health, the first part of which has already worked, in which they focused on stress and how the reality of the country is affecting Mexican entrepreneurs.
The report that surveyed more than five thousand small businesses between February 21 and March 31 of this year showed that 63% of entrepreneurs or small business owners suffer from high to moderate stress.
The concerns of Mexican entrepreneurs are “lack of financial resources” in 48.71%, “fear that my business will close” in 23.93%, “the violence and insecurity of the country” in 23.93% and “not having enough time to my personal life ”by 23.31 percent.
The second part of this report will focus on knowing how the measures adopted by the government against the COVID-19 pandemic are impacting them.
