In addition, consumer perception also went down after a slight upward trend in March.
Journalist Patricia Palma, wrote in Elsalvador.com: "According to this monthly monitoring, which measures positive or negative entrepreneurial perception about their situation, the overall sales indicator showed a net balance of -54%. That is, sales decreased for more than half of the respondents. This is the biggest drop since the indicator began a downward trend that has now continued for eight consecutive months. The same behavior was shown by the overall employment indicator, which went to -40%, its lowest level in the last nine months."
