The article provides blend of graphic and some print text of the lives of  small business  communities in  Korogocho Community in Nairobi and the effect of the COVID 19. 

From a gender lens, there is need to further examine the intersection of gender , age and poverty to have a more nuaced understanding on the effects at household and community level. We need to examine how gender norms and roles could be shifting in light of dwilling livelihood opportunities and what effect this has on resilience and gender inequality. For example norms on caregiving and breadwinning.
