January 12, 2022 - Adejoh E.U., Elizabeth Yusuf James., L. <>, <>, <>, <> and Wellington Osawe

Key Messages:

• Though Kebbi State did not implement a lockdown in response to COVID-19, SMEs in the state were still significantly impacted by disruptions to their input and output supply chains largely due to their interdependence on other states for inputs, output markets and other supporting services
• The challenges firms faced in Kebbi State changed from supply chain disruptions (due to reduced vehicular movement from other states supplying inputs) to high cost of inputs
• Only four percent (4%) of the study sample received any assistance from Government. No respondent received any other form of support.
