#IamEssential: Have you lost your job to COVID-19?

Around the world and here in Nigeria, thousands of people have lost their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Corporations, startups and small businesses have been forced to close or cut down operations.

We are looking for people who would like to share their COVID-19 unemployment experiences. Has your employment or income been affected by the pandemic? Have you struggled with keeping up with bills or making ends meet? We want to hear from you!

How to tell your story

Please complete this form and a member of the Casava team will reach out with a few questions about you and your experience.

Why your story?

One of the bright spots that has emerged during the pandemic is the respect and appreciation for previously unsung workers.

We strongly believe that anyone rendering any form of service regardless of the industry is truly essential.

Telling your story will help us to better understand the challenges people are facing at this time. #IamEssential is part of a project that aims to help Nigerians protect their income from job loss or serious injury.

Every worker featured in the series will receive a N20,000 reward from the team at Casava for your participation.

Who we are

#IamEssential is led by Casava — an insurance company created to help every Nigerian protect their income from unemployment. We ensure that in the event of job loss or in the case that you can’t work because of a serious injury, you earn your salary for up to 6 months.
