Small business has been hit hard by COVID-19.
Health restrictions forced many small businesses to close their doors, while others have managed to stay open, albeit with significantly less foot traffic through their store.
Meanwhile, bills rack up, be it for energy, insurance, rent or interest on a loan all of which need to eventually be paid.
