According to social security figures, there were on average 5,384 self-employed people in Calvia between March and September last year. These represented 20% of registrations in the municipality with social security - the highest percentage in Majorca's "part forana" (anywhere but Palma).
Calvia town hall has set up a new service to provide information about help available to the self-employed, many of whom are being and will be particularly hard hit by the crisis. The town hall says that it will be analysing each request for assistance from the self-employed. The ISBA not-for-profit bank, which enables access to finance to small businesses, is providing "extraordinary liquidity products", and the town hall will be helping with channelling requests to the bank.
