This sudden wave hits badly to community tourism. Guesthouse industry is still in infant age. None of us has huge saving unlike other related sectors. Most of us are already trapped with bank loans with high interest rate. Guesthouses are located
in local islands & within the local community.
Local tourism distributes revenue starting from airport transfer to excursion boats, grocery stores, souvenir shops, local cafe’s & restaurants. We won’t overcome this situation without state support. This will collapse thousands of small investments along with guesthouses. Considering to all these factors, government should include prominent amount of funds to secure guesthouses & related businesses. I believe we should get grants along with low interest rate loans & flexible terms for pending utility bills to utilise the best out of cash flow.
