"As an interior millwork supplier, our business relies heavily on orders from architects and interior designers. During the COVID-19 pandemic, investment in the construction sector slowed down, causing us to lose orders from these clients.
Despite the crisis, our determination and know-how helped us stay afloat. Now our orders are picking up again -- and we are working to ensure that our high production rate does not impact the quality of our products.
Thanks to the COVID-19 Enterprise Recovery Fund established by the US government as part of the Tunisia JOBS program, we received a grant to purchase raw material, such as wood panels, to increase production. This enabled us to sustain our staff and hire two new employees."
