The loyalty index of small businesses fell in the first half of 2018, as compared to the previous year, reaching 27 points, according to Inc.Russia referring to the study of Alfa-Bank titled “Small Business Pulse”. A more pessimistic attitude was previously noted only in November 2015, when the figure dropped to -38.
