COVID-19 RECOVERY AND RESILIENCE
The Mastercard Foundation COVID-19 Recovery and Resilience Program (CRRP) was designed to assist institutions and communities in Africa to weather respond to the short-term, negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, while strengthening their resilience in the long-run.
Technical assistance was a key part of the program. CRRP featured both online and offline assessment and training methods to improve MSMEs resilience during and beyond the pandemic. Sectors that benefited were wholesale and retail trade, clothing and fashion services, and agriculture and livestock.
