Income Generating Projects To Do During Indefinite Lock-down

Income Generating Projects is now a necessity so as to redress cash shortages.  The President of Zimbabwe His Excellence Mr Emerson Dambudzo Munangagwa declared an indefinite Lock-down extension. This was done so as to protect the Population Health. He also eased the the lock-down restrictions to level two (2) and this was done to balance the health of the people and the economy. Level two is when people are allowed to go to work mainly those in the formal sector such as the civil servants.

This did not redress the informal sector of which it consist more than 90% of the people and the are not allowed to go and do their day to day errands as they survive on hand to mouth situation.

Noting that there is ban of selling of second hand clothes due to health threats, sky rocketing of prices of basic commodities such as roller meal, bread and meat. There are some income generating projects which one can do while practicing health restriction set by WHO.
