Why Is Google Helping?
Small and medium-sized businesses are the backbone of our communities.
They represent about 90 percent of all businesses and more than half of employment worldwide, according to the World Bank.
COVID-19 has posed a particular challenge to these businesses, who may be facing closures and declining revenue even as they find ways to support and protect their employees.
Through ad credits, Google hopes to alleviate some of the cost to stay in touch with their customers.
