Over the last year, the world has witnessed massive economic shutdowns causing effects on personal healthcare, social lives, employment, businesses, and the overall economy. The entire global supply chain has been on halt, which has disrupted consumption, business continuity, and overall global growth. This shock wave has gone through the Nepalese economy as well.
COVID has hit our lifestyle in a pretty indecent manner, specially the 2nd variant is hitting hard in the life of we Nepelese with an unexceptional shift in our lifestyle.
COVID has turned the face of the business industry up-side down. Due to covid many small -scale businessmen have shut down their business and on the other hand those who are running the business are on the verge to bear great loss in their business because there are no sales!
Nonetheless, COVID has definitely taught us to be prepared for the worst possible scenario. In the midst of everything, COVID has also provided an opportunity for our Digital platforms to boon. While most of the SMEs(Small and Medium Enterprises) reported a loss of sales, some SMEs who rely on digital technologies reported an increase in sales during the pandemic. An increasing number of platform businesses in the Nepalese market (e.g., Daraz, Kirana, Sastodeal, Foodmandu, Bhojdeal, Hamrobazar, Muncha, NepBay, SmartDoko, Metrotarkari) have a positive impact on increasing sales and expansion of businesses. There was an increase in the use of mobile technology and digitization during the pandemic. There is an acceleration in the use of mobile technology in the trade of goods and services, social interaction, public services, and entertainment.
Many entrepreneurs, businessmen, groups have started to use the digital platform as a form of saviours. Startups are growing like nothing else.
