“I am relieved that the government has allowed us to take out money from Account 1 of our Employees Provident Fund (EPF). I sell flowers and cookies from home to earn a living while my husband works in Singapore. My business was badly hit due to Covid-19 and my husband was unable to send back as much money as he used to as he now has extra expenses to bear due to the closure of the border. He used to travel back and forth between Johor and Singapore daily but he now has no choice but to remain in Singapore where he has to fork out extra cash for his rent there as well as for his daily basic needs.

The money from the EPF really helps to ease our burden but I have made it a point to only take it out when we are desperate. ”S. Sumathi, 47, trader
