Opportunities During the Crisis

Because of the restrictions on movement decreed in Central American countries, orders in applications dedicated to home delivery have increased considerably.

Tuesday, March 24, 2020

The services of electronic delivery platforms such as Hugo and Uber Eats, among others, are among the few sectors that will be able to circulate in El Salvador after Nayib Bukele announced on March 21 the home quarantine, which will last 30 days.

See "Coronavirus: How Will It Affect Business?"

Pedro Pablo Donis, regional marketing director of Hugo App, explained to Elmundo.sv that "... there is an important increase in orders because many of its users are working in remote mode."

Donis added that "... There has been an increase in orders by approximately 20%, it is expected that by the end of March this increase will be 40%, for which we are already preparing."
