With regards to the capital needs, the MSMEs sector in India is facing a gap of Rs. five trillion, as estimated by the industry. This has multiple reasons including, no bank accounts, collaterals misplaced, lack of financial literacy, dearth of infrastructure, etc.

Platforms offering micro credit have emerged as a new poverty reduction tool contributing towards financial freedom of MSMEs. This need for immediate financial inclusion literacy gave birth to diverse lending platforms and NBFCs in the country, offering determined support for MSMEs who earlier had to rely on local lenders or chit funds.
