In this situation, most of the businesses are on their rock bottom as they face possible downfall due to the lockdown.
As we all know, non-essential shops and businesses are temporarily shutdowns so it is really hard for some business owners.
On the other hand, some are still operating and fighting against all the odds just to maintain their business running.
To give you an example is the cake business owned by Nikki Valdez.
The actress opened her cake business, Miss Buttercream back in 2015. Her business was almost fully booked by order for events including birthdays, weddings, debuts, and anniversaries.
However, with the accordance of the order by the government, all of her bookings were put on hold.
According to Nikki, she should be having wedding preparations, and the client already settled the full payment.
But Nikki assured that they will still do the event once everything is set to operate since they have a contract.
Meanwhile, the 40-year-old mother keeps herself busy by preparing foods for the frontliners. She and her family prepared packed meals that also go with Polvoron by Miss Buttercream.
Surprisingly, the online orders for Miss Buttercream cakes have come flooding. Nikki shared that orders keep on coming in as some bakeshops are closed.
And prioritizing her customers first, Nikki had to deliver the cake herself. It is after delivering apps limited their bookings so she left with no choice.
