R. Saravanan [9] | Dr. S. Parvathi

Abstract: Everyone faced enormous economic hardships as a result of the global Covid-19 outbreak. In terms of livelihood and survival, the epidemic has disproportionately impacted the world's poor population. The street vendors were among the hardest hit, with their livelihoods wrecked in the most unexpected manner. This research looks into how street vendors dealt with the pandemic and the challenges they faced. The current study used a mixed research technique, which included both quantitative and qualitative methods. The primary data was acquired through personal interviews with 85 street vendors using a questionnaire and personal interviews with the street vendors. The study's goals were to look into the business profiles of street vendors and their behaviour during the COVID 19 pandemic, as well as analyse the concerns and challenges that street sellers faced during the lockdown. During the lockout, the majority of street vendors in the poll survived on their savings or loans from private money lenders, according to the findings of the study.
