On Tuesday, December 22, 2020, Facebook through a newspaper article (Punch Newspaper) announced that about 998 companies in Nigeria and South Africa have used $1.8M SheMeansBusiness grants to bounce back from the impact of the coronavirus.

Facebook Public Policy Director, Africa, Kojo Boakye in an op-ed, noted that to support small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic, the company had given virtual training for all its Economic Impact and Digital Literacy Programmes. Kojo also said that the $1.8M SMB grants have been used by 998 companies in Nigeria and South Africa to bounce back from the effect of coronavirus.

I was listening to a radio programme some days ago, the anchor of the show said: "some people benefited a lot from the coronavirus pandemic..."  I understand better after reading this Newspaper article.
