1. Caterers

Caterers who cook on a large scale to supply to funerals, weddings, parties, naming ceremonies, and any form of social gathering have been greatly affected by the ban on public gatherings.

2. Event Planners

Event planners play the greatest role in any form of social gathering. Starting from getting the venue, food, photographers and other vendors, these people ensure events go smoothly as planned. Event planners mostly work with very large numbers. These individuals have had their businesses greatly affected because of the ban on public gathering.

3. Photographers

With their crazy rates and rather interesting packages, these business people who make a living off the lens of their cameras by capturing precious moments of their clients are probably affected by the directive by the president.

4. MC's

Just like the photographers, Masters of Ceremonies popularly known as MC's have also had their income greatly affected. Mostly described as the life of the party, these individuals profit from talking and making people happy during events like weddings, parties and naming ceremonies.

5. Fashion designers

Since going to events comes along with getting dressed and looking good, the seamstresses and tailors or better still the fashion designers come to mind.

With the ban on social gatherings for almost two months, people are not sewing new dresses to make a statement at weddings and parties as well as church gatherings. Fashion designers undoubtedly are one of the people who make a lot of money due to the constant orders from their customers.
