The Informal Economy looms large! The importance, magnitude and significance of the vast range of socio-economic activities taking place within and across diverse spaces of informality, particularly in nations situated in the Global South; can neither be overstated or underestimated. According to the International Labor Organization (ILO, 2018 p.v), approximately 60% of the world’s employed population - 2 billion people - obtain their source of income through their engagement in informal spaces.
