According to Statista, informal economy workers face a three to four times greater risk of falling into poverty. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, a wide variety of people had to start their own business informally, as this catastrophe wiped out a large number of jobs globally.

The International Labour Organization also announced that the informal workforce represents more than half of the total number of people employed in Latin America.
