The period in which the survey was carried out was between April and November 2022 and nine topics were investigated that included, among other topics: the concern they have about their sales, the evolution of their debts in recent months, the insecurity to carry out their activities , the support from the municipal and state authorities, the political instability and the economic situation of the country. Some of the results obtained are the growing insecurity perceived to carry out business, the insufficient support from municipal and state authorities and the growing indebtedness derived from the long period of the pandemic.
